Frontier Nursing University (FNU) Preceptor Susy Furr, FNP, was honored as FNU’s “Featured Preceptor” for the fall term. Susy was nominated by FNU nurse practitioner alumna, Beth Morrell.
Susy has practiced at Leesburg Sterling Family Practice for the past 15 years, which has allowed her to form remarkable relationships with her patients. As she treats multiple generations in the same family, she goes above and beyond to create strong bonds with families, making them feel heard, valued and important.
“Susy is an incredible teacher,” said Beth. “She gently teaches her students without ever making them feel scared or as if they do not know anything.”
Susy guides her students in understanding why they are performing each plan of care. She also teaches her students how to form strong bonds with their patients and how to make them feel like a part of their medical decision making.
“She has a way with patients that puts them at ease and makes them keep coming back to her,” said Beth.
Susy has been voted Loudoun Now‘s favorite nurse practitioner for several years running in Loudoun County, Virginia’s third-most populous county with a population of more than 375,000.
Susy will receive a gift card as a small token of our appreciation for her being a great preceptor. Thank you for investing your time and talent in our Frontier students, Susy!
