Ever since she was 3 years old, Stephanie Buhr, CNP, has been drawn to medicine and the nursing field. When she was in middle school, her family moved so her stepfather could work as a physician in a rural 10-bed hospital.
“During that time, I would scrub in on surgeries and volunteer at the hospital after school,” Stephanie shares. “While in the hospital environment, I realized the opportunity health care provides to help people while also integrating my love of science. I just knew a career in health care was in my future.”
After graduating from Emory University in Atlanta, Ga., Stephanie moved to Orange County, Calif., where she began working in family practice and a women’s health clinic.
“I chose a degree as a family nurse practitioner as I enjoy the wide scope of practice and the opportunities the degree affords,” Stephanie explains. “I also enjoy being able to provide care to my patients and their family members. And I particularly enjoy women’s health.”
Today, our ministry is happy to welcome Stephanie to our Legacy Early College Health Center.
“I was drawn to Bon Secours’ faith-based health care and am happy to be providing care to our community in Greenville,” Stephanie shares. “I am excited for the future of Legacy Early College Health Center, as I see growth and excellent health care to be provided in our office. I am also excited to see the positive impact the health center will have on Legacy School and the surrounding families.”
For Stephanie, health care is about providing evidence-based and individualized care for each patient.
“As a nurse practitioner, my desire is for my patients to feel comfortable and feel heard, while being assured that they will receive excellent care.”
She shares that this can often be challenging when “time constraints and lack of resources impact the care I want my patients to receive.”
However, despite the challenges, Stephanie prides herself on providing holistic, well-rounded health care that is backed by science and is up to date with current medical practice recommendations.
“The most rewarding aspect of my practice is seeing people achieve their health goals and receive healing. I am blessed to partner with God in providing health care to people.”
When she is not helping patients, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her family, going for hikes, cooking and baking.
