Leah Irving and Jordan Potts are now working as Family Nurse Practitioners in their home town, Sulphur Springs! The women met during advanced schooling and upon graduation from UT Tyler in the summer of 2016, both were hired by Christus Mother Frances Hospital Sulphur Springs to work in established practices within Christus Trinity Clinic. Both have had nursing careers already …. Leah as a hospital nurse in Sulphur Springs since 1996, and Jordan with Mother Frances hospitals in Tyler and Winnsboro for the past seven years. Each is married and raising a family in Sulphur Springs.
Both women are eager to serve patients in new and broader ways. As Family Nurse Practitioners, they can see patients of any age with any range of illness or need. Although not doctors, FNP’s can diagnose, treat illness and prescribe medication. Leah’s supervising physician is Dr. Horne at the main local clinic of Christus Trinity Clinic, and Jordan’s supervising physician is Dr. Coker at the 111 Medical Circle clinic location. Both are accepting new patients.
