Meet the Clinical Manager: Natalie Wallace BSN, RN, CEN
Natalie began her college career with a goal of teaching at the collegiate level. After her sophomore year, she wanted her career to involve both hands-on patient care and an opportunity to teach. Natalie decided to become a nurse and joined the NMHS family in 2008 after completing her degree at the Mississippi College School of Nursing. “I chose NMMC for the small community feel with state-of-the-art medical technology and capabilities,” Natalie said. “NMMC has allowed me to be involved in community outreach and continuing education and has helped me gain valuable hands-on knowledge and experience. The Emergency Department has a strong sense of camaraderie and teamwork that makes us all feel like we can conquer anything.”
Natalie lives in Saltillo, Mississippi, with her 4-year-old son, Brett, and enjoys spending time with her son and being outdoors.
