Nicole Lassiter has been a nurse-midwife and women’s health nurse-practitioner for 11 years. In 2003, she graduated from Frontier Nursing University in the nurse-midwifery and women’s health nurse-practitioner tracks, and from Case Western University with a MSN. She has provided full-scope, clinical care to low-risk, high-risk, and minority populations in free-standing birth centers, hospital settings, and the public health system. Approaching her 8th year as faculty at Frontier Nursing University, Nicole teaches both nurse-midwifery and primary care courses both on-line and on-site. Nicole publishes in and serves as a peer-reviewer for the Journal of Midwifery and Women’s Health, and has co-authored and presented the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) exam prep publications and workshop for the nurse-midwifery national certification exam for the past four years. Her co-authored chapter in the only pharmacology text for women’s health is pending publication this year. In addition to teaching, she currently provides support and ritual to women in preparation for childbirth, and transformational work for those healing birth trauma. She recently practiced with Boulder Nurse Midwives until it’s closure in 2014. Her next clinical endeavor is to volunteer with Midwives for Haiti.
