Welcome to CCH's new CNO, Misty Robertson

Welcome to CCH's new CNO, Misty Robertson

Misty Robertson is always looking to learn something when she moves to a new area. Campbell County Health’s new Chief Nursing Officer learned how to bake last year from a Mennonite community near her previous CNO position in Sand Point, Idaho.

Looking for a challenge is a common theme in Misty’s professional life, too. She began her career as a staff nurse in a hospital Medical/Surgical unit and Emergency Department.

“They made me be a charge nurse,” said Misty.

Misty moved into nursing leadership for the chance to impact patient’s lives on a broader scale than she could in direct patient care. She was attracted to CCH because of the continuum of care from EMS to long-term care.

“That’s unusual, especially for a smaller community,” said Misty.

Misty’s goal for the short term is to get to know the people and processes in the organization. She’s impressed with what she’s seen already sees opportunities for incremental changes to help move CCH toward becoming exceptional, from a four to a five.

When she’s not working at CCH, Misty is getting used to her new home, located on 40 acres east of Gillette, Wyoming. She loves animals, and hopes to bring her chickens to Gillette soon to join her ‘pound puppy’, a terrier named Outlaw Jonny Ringo. She admits to spending most of her time doing homework, as she is in the midst of a doctoral program from Boise State University. She’ll earn her Doctor of Nursing Practice in 2021.

“This is a new clinical doctorate program that applies research to clinical nursing practice,” says Misty. “I want to help advance the nursing profession to a seat at the healthcare leadership table.”

Please join CCH as we welcome Misty to CCH, and to Gillette, Wyoming.
