Pee Dee AHEC's Continuing Professional Development Coordinator Cheryl Neuner was recognized on April 22 as a Palmetto Gold award recipient at the 2017 Annual Gala in Columbia. Palmetto Gold is a recognition and scholarship program for South Carolina nurses who amplify excellence in nursing practice and commitment to their nursing profession.
“It is an awesome experience to be nominated, much less awarded the Palmetto Gold for doing the things that you feel are incredibly important and that you, as a nurse, were meant to do,” remarks Cheryl. “South Carolina AHEC has been supportive and instrumental in helping me to educate and to disseminate information to providers statewide.”
Cheryl is responsible for providing accredited continuing professional development programs for nurses in the twelve county Pee Dee region and the coordination of the National AHEC HPV vaccination education program for South Carolina. She also serves on the South Carolina Nurses Association Continuing Education Approver Committee. Cheryl received her BSN degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and holds a neonatal intensive care nursing certification.
Cheryl’s passion for excellence in nursing and education is evident in all of her work. She is enthusiastic and strives for innovation and the best possible delivery of education programs to healthcare providers, both in the Pee Dee region and beyond.
