Nurse Nancy LLC
The founding co-owner, President and Program Coordinator of Nurse Nancy LLC is Nancy E. Whatley, an experienced Registered Nurse (RN) in good standing, licensed by the State of Colorado.
Nancy retains over 23 years of professional experience working as an RN, including 12 years in the medical/surgical sub-acute care unit of the massive University of New Mexico Hospital & Level 1 Trauma Center located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. While serving in this capacity, Nancy gained invaluable experience working with all aspects of trauma, burn and long-term care, including treatment of chronically ill patients with Necrotizing fasciitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and ventilator dependency. In addition, she has worked extensively with CPR, advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), sub-acute care (SAC), arterial blood gas (ABG), burn treatment, ventilator management, basic arrhythmia, and epidural applications.
While at the UNM Hospital, Nancy directly supervised and trained a large number of CNAs, GNs, LPNs and RNs, and as a result, was awarded the prestigious UNM Hospital “Preceptor of the Year Award” (the UNM Hospital was recently ranked among the top ten academic medical centers in the nation!).
Nancy has also worked extensively as a “home care nurse” providing a broad range of care-giving services and has worked at numerous long-term care facilities and skilled nursing centers providing care for the elderly and for those with dimentia and other cognitive impairements.
These teaching skills form the foundation of the Front Range Nurse Aide Training Program where Nurse Nancy has served as the Colorado State approved Program Coordinator and Primary Instructor since 2006. To date, she has directly supervised the training of around 2100 student nurse aides!
