INP Founder and UWMC Coordinator
Mrs. Golden graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of New Hampshire, received her bachelors in nursing in 2007. Mrs Golden went on to become a critical care nurse at the University of Washington Medical Center and has worked the past 8 years with critically ill medical, surgical, and transplant patients. She has also committed her life to improving health through nursing education and training and is a leader in the field of international nursing. Mrs. Golden has worked all over Brazil and in Phnom Penh Cambodia hosting classes, conducting bedside didactics, and being a featured lecturer for international nursing symposiums.
In 2011 Mrs. Golden spent 4 months volunteering abroad helping a team of providers start the first transplant centers in the rural Amazon regions of Brazil. This work led her to creat the International Nursing Program (INP) and in 2014 Mrs. Golden created the INP at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) in order to strengthen global nursing education through partnering UWMC nurses with nurses from low to middle income countries around the world. This work has also led her to become the Assistant Director of Nursing Services at UW Medicine INTERSECT where she represents nursing in the solution to increase critical care capacity in low to middle income countries.
Mrs. Golden is earning her doctorate in nursing degree (DNP) from the University of Washington, where she will continue to grow the INP with a new level of education and understanding.
