“I knew she was well-respected but until I spent time with her, I could not have guessed what she means to nursing and as a representative of Ursuline in the community,” Goliat said. “She is an incredible testament to the knowledge, critical thinking ability, skills, and compassion needed to be a top-notch nurse and nurse practitioner. She cares so very much for people and I heard many times in rounding with her – from physicians, nurses, and patients alike – that she was one-in-a-million and exemplified the knowledge and compassion needed to be one of the most excellent primary care providers they knew.”
Nied, who earned her bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN) from Ursuline in 1981, is a nurse practitioner at Cleveland Clinic Twinsburg Family Health and Surgery Center. She was featured in the summer issue of the Cleveland Clinic’s Health Essentials magazine, which quotes one of Nied’s patients describing her as a “godsend.”
The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners’ Award for Excellence is presented each year to one nurse practitioner in each state who has demonstrated excellence in clinical practice. Nied was presented with the award at the AANP Conference in San Antonio in June. She also will be recognized at the Ohio Association of Advanced Practice Nurses statewide conference in Columbus in October.
