Nurse Nancy LLC
The Front Range Nurse Aide Training Program was founded in 2006 by Nancy E. Whatley, an experienced Registered Nurse (RN) preceptor along with her archaeologist husband, William Whatley.
Nancy retains over 24 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 dementia and other cognitive impairments.
These teaching skills formed the foundation of the Front Range Nurse Aide Training Program where Nurse Nancy served as the Colorado State approved Program Coordinator and Primary Instructor from 2006 until December of 2015. During that time, she directly supervised the training of over 2900 student nurse aides!
