Sherry V. Carter, BSN, RN

Clinical Nurse Educator

Sherry Carter came to UC Irvine Medical Center as a new graduate nurse in pediatrics after a 16-year career with the Walt Disney Company. After a year, she moved to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and spent 15 rewarding years at the bedside.

Since September 2001, she has been the clinical nurse educator in the PICU. In her role, she developed the pediatric new graduate orientation program, provided oversight for new graduate nurses and provided ongoing educational support to pediatric nursing staff.

She has helped facilitate the implementation of a primary nursing care delivery model in our inpatient nursing units, educational support to medical surgical units, Magnet Program redesignation and annual nurse competency validation program development.

In her free time, Carter enjoys traveling with her husband, Bob, and her two daughters, Lauren and Christiana.
