Cheryl Wild-Norvell, chief nursing officer (CNO) of Broward Health North, has joined Florida Atlantic University’s Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing’s Advisory Board.

“Cheryl brings to the advisory board a wealth of knowledge and more than 30 years of experience as a health care leader,” said Safiya George, Ph.D., dean, Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing. “We welcome her contributions and expertise to support our nursing students as they prepare for careers in healthcare facilities in the state and across the country.”

Wild-Norvell is responsible for clinical care at Broward Health North including management of clinical operations for the COVID-19 pandemic. She oversees and coordinates the hospital's nursing units and their daily operations and provides strategic leadership to nursing and patient care functions and services. Wild-Norvell has served as chair for Broward Health’s Chief Nursing Officer Council and has been instrumental in enhancing Broward Health’s quality composite scores. She most recently served as the CNO at Broward Health Coral Springs and was previously with Good Samaritan Medical Center as CNO. Wild-Norvell served for two years as the Tenet Palm Beach Group CNO, overseeing quality and service for the five Palm Beach Tenet hospital facilities. Prior to that, Wild-Norvell was Delray Medical Center’s assistant chief nursing officer and director of nursing.

“I am honored to be invited to participate in the progressive and important work done at FAU’s Nursing Advisory Board,” said Wild-Norvell. “Through connection with the local community, education of our teams and the empowerment of prospective nurse leaders, we can continue to shape the future of caregiving. I am committed to partnering with FAU in its mission to guide and lead our next generation of nurses into mission driven service.”

Wild-Norvell has a master’s degree in nursing, leadership and health systems management from Drexel University in Philadelphia and a Master of Business Administration degree from Trinity University in San Antonio. She earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Trenton State College in New Jersey.

Formed in 2012, the advisory board supports the College by leading advocacy and fundraising efforts. This past year, the board expanded its fundraising efforts for the College’s White Coat Ceremony so each student could receive a white coat scholarship and provide additional support to nursing students.
