Laura Ingvalson ’05/’10

To borrow a phrase from sports, LAURA INGVALSON ’05/’10 is a utility player in the nursing profession.

She works in the nursing float pool at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin. That means that she’s caring for patients in the Critical Care Unit on one 12-hour shift, and on another she’s immersed in the fast-paced environment of the emergency room.

“I was the only new graduate who was hired as a critical care float pool RN,” says Ingvalson, who earned both her undergraduate and master’s degrees at Winona State. “I enjoy the change of pace and I get to practice the full range of my skills.”

Despite an intense schedule, Ingvalson is also a member of the adjunct clinical nursing faculty at Winona State. She says that’s where her variety of skills comes in handy as she teaches the basics to students who are just beginning their professions.

“I’ve always enjoyed learning,” says Ingvalson. “It’s rewarding to teach what I’ve learned and help shape the future of the profession.”
