Spotlight On ANVC Members
Introducing: Fern Cudlip, MSN, FNP, CNRN, NVRN, ANVP, FNCS

1. Where do you work?  I have been working in the San Francisco/OAK bay areas as a stroke coordinator/NP since 2008. I have worked in both academic and community settings for both PSC & CSC levels of care.

2. What is your role? 

  • As the Neurovascular NP, I am actively engaged in the acute diagnosis and TPA/NIR treatment decisions for acute stroke in the ED alongside participating in the continuum of care by co-managing the Neurovascular and Neurocritical care patients in the NSICU and telemetry units.
  • As the program coordinator, I carry the responsibility for formatting a collaborative neurovascular program that has touch points along the continuum of services within the hospital to serve the neurovascular patient
  • I generally oversee the formulation and implementation of all aspects of the stroke program in addition to the educational requirements for the neurovascular service line; including general neurovascular competency, ongoing education, and unit based competencies.
  • Given my experience and expertise, I also participate in research on all levels

3. What are you reading?  Too many journals …but in my spare time, I love to be with my family In addition, I love to walk for several miles/day, take long bike rides in the wine country on the weekends, and recently picked up learning to play golf.

4. Share an inspirational quote: 

  • My favorite inspiration: Psalm 139
  • Others: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

  •  “The world is changed by your example not by your opinion”
