Altruista Honors Leigh Ann Farmer During Nurses Week

Leigh Ann Farmer, MSN, RN-BC, CCM, CSSBB, NEA-BC, is a doctor of management in organizational leadership and clinical subject matter expert at Altruista Health. She joined Altruista in December 2019.

Why did you go into nursing?

I went into nursing because of my love of science and my desire to help people. In addition, nursing has many career opportunities, job security and advanced degrees. My mother is a retired nurse who loved her career and that love inspired me to go into nursing as well.

What is the most surprising thing you’ve learned about the profession of nursing?

When I started out working as a critical care nurse, I had no idea all of the options nursing offers! I knew that I did not want to work in a hospital long-term, but did work two years in a hospital before moving into managed care. I have worked in many non-traditional roles as a nurse and continue to be surprised about how nurses can impact healthcare. In addition, I have been pleasantly surprised to see nursing become more of a part of healthcare informatics and technology.

What inspires you the most in your day-to-day work?

I am inspired by the great team and my drive to deliver results. Since joining Altruista, everyone has been so helpful. I find the problem-solving nature of the job rewarding. In addition, I continue to be challenged, which drives innovation and creativity.

How does Altruista support the higher values of nursing?

Altruista supports the higher values of nursing in so many ways. Nursing is about integrity, caring, diversity and excellence, which are consistent with Altruista’s focus on providing top solutions for our clients, continual improvement and prioritizing client needs. Nursing and Altruista have a mission of improving health outcomes and I am happy to be a part of this company.
