Tina Hix, RN, Nurse-Family Partnership Houston County

Georgia Home Visiting Program is proud to spotlight Tina Hix, RN, Nurse Supervisor with Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) in Houston County.  Tina started with NFP as a Nurse Home Visitor in February 2014. As a home visitor for this program, she consistently maintained a full and active caseload of 25 mothers and babies. When the Nurse Supervisor position suddenly became vacant in early 2017, Tina agreed to step into the role and she continues to do an outstanding job empowering her team to grow and to continue to impact families in Houston County. She also makes sure that they take good care of themselves in the process.

 

No one knows of Tina's hard work and dedication quite like her team. Their own words say it all.
