Catina Gordon-Oates, RN, BSBA, LNC
Catina is the founder and President of NOLA Legal Nurse Consultants. Throughout sixteen years of health care experience, she has worked in a variety of settings, including critical care, oncology, eldercare, home health, clinical research, and as a Director of Nursing. Catina began her nursing career caring for geriatric patients with chronic medical conditions. After working in Long-Term care for over 2 years, Catina moved into a position caring for patients in a Medical-Surgical Care Unit. There she monitored patients recovering from acute and chronic conditions requiring surgical intervention. She also worked for over 3 years as a Home Health Case Manager, educating patients and their families on how to manage their chronic and newly diagnosed illnesses. Combining her interest in research with her clinical nursing experience, Catina assumed the role of a Clinical Research Coordinator at a prominent Clinical Research Organization and eventually became their Director of Clinical Operations until Hurricane Katrina forced her to pursue a different career path. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive service that would offer the medical expertise needed for attorneys involved in medical related cases, Catina started NOLA Legal Nurse Consultants. She endured a rigorous legal nurse consultant course and is prepared for certification by the AALNC. She also mastered a paralegal training course and earned a Certificate in Paralegal Studies. Catina assists attorneys with assessment of medical and personal injury case files, including medical records review, evaluation and analysis; deposition and expert preparation and other supporting services. In order to stay abreast of the latest trends in healthcare, Catina remains a practicing nurse. Her clinical experience and her background in medical research and education bring valuable skills to our team. Catina is proud to be an active member of the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants (AALNC), American Nurses Association (ANA), Louisiana State Nurses Association (LSNA), New Orleans District Nurses Association (NODNA) and the Louisiana State Paralegal Association (LSPA).
