Laqueta Nelson, NP

Meet Laqueta! The newest advanced practice provider to join the Heart and Vascular team.

Laqueta moved to the Atlanta area from Chicago and now resides in Acworth, GA. Laqueta’s passion for nursing can be described as genetic, following in the footsteps of both her grandfather and grandmother. She has garnered 20 years of experience in healthcare, with a specialty in cardiac medicine and intervention over the last 13 years.

After many years of serving the healthcare community, she graduated with a Masters of Science
in Nursing and was board certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Academy of
Nurse Practitioners. During her time at Walden University, Laqueta was invited to become a
member of Sigma Theta Tau honor society of nursing, which she proudly accepted. Her
knowledge, experience, and heart for the patient population are the foundation that drives her to
do more, and always excel as a healthcare provider.

Laqueta has a passion for helping people and communities live well, and she strives to do just that with each individual she encounters.

On her off time, Laqueta enjoys singing and hanging with her family and friends.
