Lana R Benton, RN, BSN, iRNPA
Lana Benton is an RN with 30 years of healthcare experience in a variety of settings. Having graduated with her BSN from the Medical College of GA, her career has been a natural progression from nursing assistant to staff nurse to full time Patient Advocate. Believing that every patient should have the tools they need to make informed decisions about their care, education is one of the most important aspects of the advocate. Giving you those tools to make your decisions, understand your medical care, and work toward your best outcomes is the foundation of her statement, “Your Health, Your Voice, and Your Guide.”
Lana has worked in numerous medical facilities including Medical College of GA, University of California- Davis, Yale-New Haven Hospital, Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers, and several others. Proving her adaptability, three years of her career were spent as a travel nurse, giving a broad base of experience across the United States. Specialties worked include General Medicine, Telemetry, Oncology, AIDS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Hormone Replacement, Immune Deficiencies and Chronic Diseases.
As a Case Manager/Patient Advocate, Lana worked collaboratively with doctors to provide the highest quality of care, interfaced with major pharmaceutical companies to secure free to low cost prescriptions for her patients who otherwise could not afford them, and follows up with patients to monitor adherence to treatment plans.
Realizing this was her passion, Lana received specialized training through the RN Patient Advocacy Program, the only nationally recognized Patient Advocacy education program created specifically for highly qualified RNs and endorsed by The College of Nursing, University of Arizona and the American Holistic Nurses Association.
