CRMC honors TCC’s Alice Nied as “Nurse of Excellence”

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (May 10, 2013) – As a nurse, an educator, and a dean—Tallahassee Community College’s Alice Nied has touched and influenced countless lives.  At this week’s 25th annual Nurse of Excellence Banquet, her contributions to nursing were honored by Capital Regional Medical Center.

CRMC began the event 25 years ago to recognize outstanding nurses in the community for what they do every day to represent the nursing profession. The banquet coincides with National Nurses Week—celebrated annually from May 6, National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

Nurses from a variety of local agencies, clinical institutions, educational institutions and organizations were selected and honored as Nurses of Excellence.
Alice Nied, DNP, MSN, RN, NEA-BC has been a registered nurse for 42 years. She has an incredibly diverse range of experience as a nurse—her career has encompassed serving as a hospital floor nurse, a head nurse, a surgical nurse, an addictions rehab nurse, a nursing home nurse, a doctor’s office nurse, a mentor, a preceptor, an educator and an administrator. Alice has a Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP), and holds the distinction of being the first DNP in the Tallahassee area.
Alice joined TCC in 2008 as director of the TCC Nursing Program and in 2011 was promoted to dean of the Healthcare Professions Division.  Under Alice’s leadership and hard work, the nursing program has improved retention rates, graduation rates and NCLEX passage rates.  The program earned NLNAC accreditation this year for the first time.
“When you consider the number of students Alice has mentored, guided and taught, and how those students go on to touch so many lives through their careers as nurses and other healthcare professionals—the effect is exponential. It’s inspiring to think about,” said Dr. Barbara Sloan, TCC’s provost and vice president for Academic Affairs. “We’re incredibly proud of Alice’s leadership over our healthcare programs, and it’s great to see CRMC recognize the accomplishments we’re fortunate enough to experience firsthand at TCC.”
