Dr. Candy Campbell

Candace Campbell, DNP, MSN-HCSM, RN, CNL, FNAP (aka:Candy The Nurse ) has worn two hats for many years; one as a healthcare professional and the other as an artist.

Within healthcare, she has worked as a nurse, administrator, educator in the areas of hospital and public health for over 30  years. She also holds degrees in Speech Communications and Theatre and has earned awards as a filmmaker, writer, actress, and fine artist.  A  five year  research project with families of preemies and a passion to share knowledge about the psycho-social implications of having a severely premature baby compelled her to create the award-winning film, Micropremature Babies: How Low Can You Go? 

As an author, Campbell says she only writes books she wants to buy and can’t find. My Mom Is A Nurse is her tip o’ the hat to those who serve in that arena, while Good Things Come In Small Packages (I Was A Preemie) exists to help parents guide their toddlers through some rough waters of realization. Currently, she’s writing a non-fiction book  to help parents. Watch for A Primer For Parents of Preemies, coming in 2016. (To receive an autographed copy, place your name on the waiting list HERE.)

Note: The second edition of  Channeling Florence Nightingale: Integrity, Insight, Innovation is in the works and will be available in May!

The creation of Candy Campbell & Company Healthcare Communication Specialists melds these two interest areas of healthcare and artistic problem-solving.  From early days in college judging speech meets, to teaching improv, comedy, and healthcare (separately and simultaneously!)  Candy brings continued experience as an educator, performer,  and speech coach.
