Michael Nanney


Michael has nearly 30 years of experience in the medical profession, beginning as a registered respiratory therapist. He has practiced in various intensive care units as an RRT, where his duties included ventilator management, airway management and hemodynamic monitoring. In 1993, after graduating from nursing school, he began working in a cardiac cath lab/ electrophysiology lab, where he worked in a dual role as registered nurse and respiratory therapist. In his career, he has worked in various ICUs as a bedside nurse and a rapid response nurse.

After spending nearly 17 years working in a Phase I postanesthesia care unit, where his role ranged from beside nursing to serving as a preceptor, competency validator and educator, not only for the PACU staff, but also the presurgical department, Phase II staff and medical day staff, Michael currently works in an emergency department providing bedside care while also mentoring new graduate nurses and continuing to teach ACLS and PALS systemwide for his hospital. Michael has presented many podium lectures, from hospital-based education classes to state and national conferences.

In addition to his everyday duties, he also assists his hospital’s staff education department in teaching CCRN and PCCN hospital-based review courses, with emphasis on the respiratory component for these two exams. He is a two-time recipient of the Hospital Nurse Excellence Award and a recipient of the 2015 Great 100 Nurses in North Carolina award. He also remains active in teaching BCLS and ACLS. Besides maintaining his registered respiratory therapist status, Michael is also a member of the American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses (ASPAN) and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN).
