Dr. Laura Hudson DNP, APRN, FNP-C
-Owner & Provider

Dr. Laura Hudson is Doctor of Nursing Practice, AANP Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner providing holistic health care in her comfortable office-based setting.

With over 17 years of college education, Dr. Hudson has studied at multiple institutions to achieve a broad knowledge base, allowing her to address many healthcare needs. As an independent Nurse Practitioner, she can be your PCP or someone you seek counsel from regarding your specific concerns. Dr. Laura enjoys focusing on individual wellness and believes someone’s mindset can greatly impact their health. Because of this Laura enjoys taking extra time with her patients to educate them on how the body operates in health and sickness. Dr. Hudson works with her patients to guide and empower them as they help their body function at its best.

Since beginning at the Journey to Wellness, Integrative Wellness Center in early 2016, Laura has been focused on providing women’s healthcare including basic gynecological care, along with managing several conditions with pharmaceutical, complementary and alternative treatment options. Dr. Laura has extensive knowledge regarding the use of Therapeutic Cannabis to help those of her patients who qualify and wish to certify for the NH Therapeutic Cannabis Program. She also enjoys managing thyroid and gastrointestinal dysfunction and has attended courses to expand her skills with regards to nutritional counseling and management.

Dr. Laura also has a passion for teaching and often hosts Nurse Practitioner & Physician Assistant Interns from several local Universities. She believes it is important to mentor new Practitioners as they complete the clinical hours required for them to graduate. This allows for the future leaders of healthcare to be exposed to functional and holistic methods which they will hopefully integrate into the care they provide once practicing independently.

Dr. Hudson is not taking new patients, but oversees all patient care in the clinic, and is available for established patient consultation at the request of the other providers.

Susan Gosselin FNP-C, APRN, MSN

Susan Gosselin is a AANP certified Family Nurse Practitioner. She started her Nursing career as a Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Research Nurse at the Children’s Clinical Research Center at Yale New Haven hospital in 1988. Here she specialized in infusion therapy administering chemotherapy and training other colleagues in venous access devices and was recognized as a certified IV/Chemotherapy therapy nurse (ONS). This is where her love for knowledge in complex life threatening blood disorders, cancers, rare genetic, metabolic, neurologic and general medical problems was cultivated. In the Summer’s, She worked in the infirmary at Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Camp where children from around the world were allowed to experience a normal Summer camp experience despite having a life threatening blood disorder.

In 1992, she enrolled in a Pediatric Master’s Program at the University of Virginia, where she focused on Oncology and specifically the bone marrow transplant (BMT) process. She participated in a pilgrimage to other hospitals BMT units in grad school (UVA, Washington Children’s, Sloan Kettering, Boston Children’s, Maine Medical Center). She graduated Magna Cum Laude.

After starting her family, Sue began a career in Adult Oncology, becoming involved in the National Oncology Nursing Society. She rose from staff nurse to many other leadership roles ranging from an infusion nurse specialist, Clinical leader, Breast Cancer Nurse Navigator, Manager and ultimately Director of Hematology and Oncology for a local NH hospital, building cancer centers and supporting patients and their families in the local community. During this time, she served on some prestigious non-profit organizations on their Board of Directors and participated in many cancer fundraising efforts.

In 2011, she entered into a Family Nurse Practitioner Post Master’s Certificate program at Regis College. It was an important transition to focus on improving patient’s lives as a skilled practitioner. This was encouraged by her Mother who had passed away from Pancreatic cancer. After Graduation, she started as the only Family Nurse Practitioner in a Primary care office for over 7 years, where she had the pleasure of caring for many families and their children, in a practice with over 6000 patients. The many years of cancer care served her well, allowing cancer prevention, knowledge about blood disorders and primary care knowledge to flourish in a holistic manner. She also worked in Urgent care settings, Community Health settings, and other primary care offices part-time where she acquired minor surgery and emergency skills. She currently works Full time in a retail healthcare setting as a Family Nurse Practitioner.

Sue joined Compass Family Health in November, 2019 and has become a valued part-time provider. She continues to provide holistic medicine with an appreciation for the importance of functional medicine in helping patients feel their best.
