Linda Smith, RN, Care Plan Manager
She has a passion for home health…
Linda is a graduate of Easton Hospital School of Nursing with a three-year diploma. During her Home Health Nursing rotation, she became interested in this aspect of care, but most of her early nursing opportunities were in long term care. Her family relocated to Phoenix, AZ where Linda finally found a very satisfying niche in Home Health Nursing. Four years later, her family moved to South Carolina which required her to leave home health and go back into long term care.
…and loves educating new people entering the health care industry.
In 2001, Linda was excited to become a nurse educator. During the next 11 years, she trained Nursing Assistants for the American Red Cross, Greenville Technical College in Greenville, SC, and Trendsetter’s CNA Academy in Youngtown, AZ. Yet always in the back of her mind was the desire to return to Home Health Nursing, but nothing really worked out until she met Golden. Strangely enough, Linda and Golden met through a new CNA who had been a student in Linda’s final class of Trendsetter’s CNA Academy.
She is committed to excellence!
Linda’s compassion for helping others shows through in her hard work ethic and dedication to Golden Heart’s clients. She personally oversees development of excellent care plans for our frail and high-risk Clients, and mentors Caregivers to help them in their professional development. She has become a valued member of the Golden Heart team!
