Nicole Lane, RN BSN,
Nicole Lane earned her BSN, in 1999, from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Currently working as a nurse, in the Wake County Public School System. Nicole works closely with teachers, social workers, guidance counselors, and psychologists to develop educational opportunities and implement policies. Her focus is to connect families with resources to help children reach their full potential – ensuring that under- and un-insured students have access to much-needed medications and support. Nicole also serves on the board of Myra’s Angels Foundation where children, who are displaced from their homes, are provided with basic living supplies during their most critical time of need.
Nicole discovered a new passion – one for patient education and safety. In acknowledgment for her efforts in this area, she was awarded the WakeMed Circle of Quality Award for her promotion of a culture of safety and support of process improvement initiatives in 2004. Ultimately, Nicole’s desire to educate prompted her to leave the clinical setting. Pursuing a career in public health as a school nurse has allowed her to educate children, families, and staff every day.
