WakeMed Nurse Named to Great 100 Nurses of N.C.

August 25, 2014

Robin Pritchett, RN, of the WakeMed Raleigh Campus Chest Pain Unit, was named one of The Great 100 Nurses in North Carolina by The Great 100, Inc., an organization that recognizes nursing excellence and provides scholarships to nursing students statewide. Pritchett, along with 99 other registered nurses, was selected on the basis of outstanding professional ability and commitment to improving health care.

Pritchett has over 30 years of experience, including 14 years at WakeMed. She has spent the past four years as a staff nurse in the Chest Pain Unit and has served on several hospital-wide and nursing unit committees.

“I knew I had been nominated, but I was just stunned when I heard that I’d been selected. It’s a great honor,” said Pritchett, who passed on her love of nursing to her daughter, who is also a WakeMed nurse!

Great 100 honorees are nominated by peers and chosen following a lengthy selection process that includes education, experience, professional and community service activities and achievements. Pritchett will be honored along with the other Great 100 recipients at a gala this October in Greensboro.
