Laura Gillispie, RN, MSN, CNM


My name is Laura Gillispie, Director of Student Health Services at Western New Mexico University. I was born and raised here in Silver City, New Mexico.  I received a Masters in Nursing from UTEP and TTUHSC in 2004, which at the time was a collaborative program.   I received a Masters in Counseling from WNMU in 2001. I have worked in most areas of nursing for 30 years.  I taught Nursing School at WNMU from 2004 thru 2006. I also taught medical students, residents, EMTs, and nursing students during their OB rotation at TTUHSC in El Paso, Texas, from 2006 thru 2009. I received a faculty teaching award from the medical students and residents for 3 terms.

Our goal at WNMU Student Health Services is to help students, to empower and educate them to make healthy choices now and for the rest of their lives. As Director of Student Health Services, it is my vision to help students in any way I can to become academically successful.
