Wesley Wood's Becky Provine named Fellow in the National Gerontological Nurses Association
Wesley Wood's Director of Nursing Becky Provine, RN, MSN, CS, was inducted as a Fellow in the National Gerontological Nurses Association (NGNA) at the association's annual meeting in Las Vegas, October 16. She was one of six members inducted this year.

In order to receive Fellow status, members must have a record of accomplishments in at least three of the following five areas: significant contributions to NGNA; unusual and outstanding contributions to gerontological nursing; notable contributions to consultation, education, research, practice or administration; status or recognition among the individual's peers (honors and awards received); and special contributions to the community in the area of gerontology. I'm extremely honored to be named a Fellow in NGNA," Provine says. "Geriatric nursing is my calling and being an advocate for my patients and fellow nurses is something that is very important to me."

From the age of five, Provine began telling er family and friends she was going to be a nurse when she grew up. "I had no family members in the field, no real exposure to the world of nursing," she says. "I just knew I wanted to be a nurse. It was always my goal. In high school, I knew this would be my next step."

As a manager, Provine is no longer a bedside nurse, but patient advocacy is still as important to her today as it was when she was working on the patient care front lines. "Managers are still very much patient advocates - the decisions I make are for our patients. I also advocate for our staff, so they in turn can be better patient advocates."

"Becky does a tremendous job at Wesley Woods and is deserving of this Fellow designation," says Pete Basler, chief operating officer of Emory's Wesley Woods Center. "She's a true leader for our nursing staff and a passionate advocate for our patients."

Provine also received the Georgia Hospital Association's 2003 G.R.E.A.T. Ambassador award for her commitment to Wesley Woods, her patients, community and profession.
