It’s a medical milestone in local health care: the first Caymanian nurse with a doctorate in nursing practice. Hazel Brown is the Chief Nursing Officer for the Health Services Authority (HSA).

She achieved her Bachelor’s degree back in 1981 and her masters in 1987 – a long way from when only one nurse was on duty for the hospital overnight.
She says increased education is good for every nurse. “We’re also trying to get all of our nurses at a bachelor’s degree. all of the research has shown that nurses with a Bachelor’s degree have a significant impact on the quality of patient care, so quality of patient care improves as the percentage of nurses with bachelors degrees increases,” said Nurse Brown.

In her time with the HSA, she has seen the hospital grow from 18 beds to 124.
