Ann Nix began her nursing career at Northside in January 1978. For the last eight years, Ann has held the position of Manager of Quality and Education for Surgical Services for the Northside Hospital Health System, where she oversees all clinical outcomes for patients undergoing surgery at all Northside Hospitals. Ann is also a licensed Advanced Practice Nurse as well as a Clinical Nurse Specialist.
It was Ann’s grandmother, who was also a nurse, who inspired her to enter the nursing field through her stories of service: “As a little girl I remember waiting to hear about what my grandmother did to care for her patients. As I grew older, I developed an admiration for what she was able to accomplish for a woman born in 1900.”
Ann’s favorite part about her job is the feeling that she has impacted a patient’s life: “The human touch, care, concern, the going above and beyond, trying your best to make it the best for others. Isn’t that what it is all about?”
We couldn’t agree more, Ann. Thank you for your 33 years of kindness and compassion for Northside patients and staff.
