Carolyn E. Nagy

Carolyn is genuinely committed to supporting veterans in Northwest Ohio. After serving in the military, she focused her nursing career in the areas of management, education, cardiology, and trauma. As a flight nurse, she transported the critically ill to various facilities in the United States. At a level 1 Trauma Center, she was the coordinator for QI and Adult Injury Prevention. She later became the Trauma Coordinator for a level 3 Trauma Center. As an educator, she developed a critical care course, lectured across the country on critical care topics, and spent numerous years as an instructor for various basic and advanced trauma courses. During her nursing career, she served on many health-related committees in the hospital and community. Following retirement from acute care, she developed the Practical Nurse Program at Stautzenberger College and served as its Director until retirement. Carolyn now focuses much of her attention to the needs of women veterans. She serves as a representative of the Ohio Department of Veterans Services Women’s Advisory Committee and is the coordinator of Women Veterans Initiative through United States Vets, Inc. Part of her focus is to identify women veterans and to increase the community’s awareness of women veterans and their needs. To increase awareness, she has organized a group of women veterans to march in regional parades and offers free presentations regarding military life. She has coordinated food, clothing, household items, transportation, visitations, socialization events, and monetary support for utilities and medical expenses based on individual needs. She publishes a free monthly newsletter highlighting the accomplishments of military women. Carolyn enters the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame at age 77.
