Title: Registered Nurse
Location: Jacksonville, Florida, United States
Esther Gartman, Registered Nurse, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Nurses for dedication, achievements, and leadership in pediatric trauma nursing.
From watching her mother and sister excel in the medical field, Ms. Gartman had always desired to take on the profession in her own right. Since volunteering in health care from the age of 11, she felt a deep-rooted connection to taking care of others, as she had watched many of her loved ones live with various health-related issues. Ms. Gartman was ultimately inspired to spearhead a career in medicine upon watching her father’s fight with cancer get more difficult, as she wanted to do anything in her power to help him heal. Shortly thereafter, she attained a Bachelor of Science in pediatrics, as well as a Master’s degree in cardiology. In 1973, she became a certified nursing assistant.
A registered nurse and advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP), Ms. Gartman has accrued decades of professional experience as a pediatric trauma nurse in Jacksonville, Florida. Over the years, she has assisted doctors, delivered infants, and worked in cardiology. Notably, in 2020, she helped in building and establishing an entire pediatrics hospital. Among her numerous career achievements, Ms. Gartman is most proud of watching the progress of her youngest son, who was born with a slight case of cerebral palsy, go on to attend culinary school and work in a restaurant. She is also honored to have won first place in a senior pageant for ages 50 to 60.
Reflecting on her illustrious career thus far, Ms. Gartman attributes her success to her family for always supporting her, along with giving her the initial inspiration and reason to go into the medical profession. Likewise, she thanks her aunt and uncle for supporting her financially through college, as she originally pursued a two-year program for nursing but her uncle encouraged her to not take the short path and instead achieve a four-year degree. In addition, Ms. Gartman also offers her utmost gratitude to her career mentor and phenomenal medical specialist, Dr. Joseph Fares.
