Deneen M. Norman, MNSc, APRN, ACNP-BC, ACNPC, CCRN, Acute Care Nurse Practitioner at Southwest Cardiology – Intermountain Healthcare, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Nurses for dedication, achievements, and leadership in critical care nursing.
After obtaining an Associate of Science in registered nursing from Garland County Community College, now National Park College, in Hot Springs, Arkansas in 1991, Ms. Norman followed with a Bachelor of Science in nursing from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock in 2004. She continued her education with a Master of Nursing Science from UAMS in 2006.
Ms. Norman provided superior care as a registered nurse in the cardiovascular intensive care unit with Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock from 1991 to 1998, and with critical care at St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center in Hot Springs from 1992 to 2006. Subsequently, she excelled as an acute care nurse practitioner with Mercy Clinic Cardiology in Hot Springs from 2006 to 2013 and with Southwest Cardiology – Intermountain Healthcare in St. George, Utah from 2013 to the present.
As an acute care nurse practitioner, Ms. Norman cares for patients with post-cardiac arrests, arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, heart failure and vascular disease; provides consultation services for emergency room and admits patients with cardiac issues; sees patients at the clinic for routine hospital follow-ups or annual check-ups; and attends to patients who call with cardiac-related problems. Her professional memberships include the American Association of Critical Care Nurses, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Utah Nurse Practitioners and the American College of Cardiology.
As a hearing-impaired person since childhood, Ms. Norman takes great pride in her success as a nurse. Her experience working with nurses when she was a medical technologist led her to enter the nursing profession, as she felt confined working in the laboratory all the time and wanted to see the individuals attached to the laboratory results for which she had been working. For Ms. Norman, the most rewarding experience in her nursing career, especially in cardiology, is to be able to help improve the quality of an individual’s life through the right medication and treatment. Making a positive difference in someone’s life gives her a sense of great accomplishment. She is hoping for continued success as a nurse practitioner before she considers retirement in the next 10 years.
