Carolyn Ford, MSN, RNC NIC, was named Outstanding NICU Nurse of the Year last year by the Georgia March of Dimes for her incredible work at Northside Hospital. With the next round of winners being announced later this fall, we’d like to take a look at the remarkable work Carolyn has done at Northside.
Carolyn’s desire to pursue nurses started at a young age, when she grew up knowing a family friend in the industry. That nurse was a respected pillar in the community, and quickly became Carolyn’s role model.
Today, Carolyn cares for infants in Northside’s NICU center.
"At this point in my career, I value working with an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals to set standards for providing high quality patient care. My favorite part is mentoring nurses at the bedside to be knowledgeable critical thinkers and advocates for their patients,” says Carolyn.
Northside applauds you, Carolyn! We appreciate you providing our patients with a holistic experience.
