Renae O. Taylor, chief nursing officer (CNO) for Southeastern Health, recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, the nation’s leading professional society for healthcare leaders.
Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. In fact, only 9,100 healthcare executives hold this distinction. To obtain Fellow status, candidates must fulfill multiple requirements, including passing a comprehensive examination, meeting academic and experiential criteria, earning continuing education credits and demonstrating professional/community involvement. Fellows are also committed to ongoing professional development and undergo recertification every three years.
A native of Bladenboro, Taylor earned an associate degree in nursing from Robeson Community College in 1991 and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from UNC Pembroke in 2008. She earned a master’s degree in healthcare administration from Independence University in 2011 and is certified as a critical care registered nurse and an advanced nurse executive.
Taylor is privileged to use the FACHE® credential, which signifies board certification in healthcare management and ACHE Fellow status.
She lives in Lumberton with her husband, Roger. She has two grown sons, Cory and Jordan Hester, and two granddaughters.Share:
