Lydia Moor, DNP, CNP, AGACNP-BC is a board certified nurse practitioner specializing in adult gerontology acute care. Her career choice was influenced by her parents’ and grandparents’ strong examples of caring for people and encouragement to be a good neighbor. Lydia chose to be a nurse because she wanted to help people overcome the barriers that keep them from achieving their maximum health and wellness.
After about a decade of bedside nursing, Lydia felt that the greatest contribution she could make to her community was to invest in her education as an advanced practice nurse practitioner. She selected her graduate specialty, adult gerontology acute care, because she enjoys providing nursing care to adults who have acute and complex chronic conditions. Lydia’s professional interests include building transitional care programs between hospital and clinic areas, promoting quality of life in patients with heart failure, addressing cardiovascular implications associated with rheumatic disease, practicing preventative cardiology, and preventing complications. Improving cardiovascular health for the community in Southeastern Idaho is important to Lydia as both a professional and a neighbor.
When she isn’t working, Lydia enjoys walking her dogs, reading good books and drinking tea next to her cat, watching movies with her husband, singing karaoke and playing guitar, and learning to ski and kayak with friends.
