Holly Hink Receives Excellence in Nurse Practitioner Practice Award

GILLETTE, Wyo. – May 16, 2023 – Campbell County parents receive award-winning care at the Kid Clinic, which serves children ages two weeks to 21 years old. Kid Clinic nurse practitioner Holly Hink has delivered exceptional patient care over the past 20 years and has become a leader in mentoring the next generation of Family Nurse Practitioners (FNPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs). Hink’s efforts have not gone unnoticed, and at the University of Wyoming’s annual Willow Ceremony, she was honored with the Excellence in Nurse Practitioner Practice Award.

“Holly is the epitome of nurse practitioner excellence,” said Candace Stidolph, FNP and Associate Lecturer at the University of Wyoming. “She is a preceptor for our FNP students who constantly rave about Holly’s clinical skills and her ability to connect with parents and kids.”

Hink’s passion for delivering exceptional patient care has grown beyond her direct clinical work with patients as she helps mentor the next generation of caregivers. Hink not only embodies Excellence Every Day, but she works to instill that spirit and passion in others.

“Holly has taught our [the University of Wyoming’s] FNP students for two years in a row,” said Stidolph. “And her student teaching evaluations are excellent. Holly truly loves working with students and wants them to feel confident in their ability to take care of children, and she will stop at nothing to help students succeed.”

While the Excellence in Nurse Practitioner Practice Award means a lot to Hink, she emphasizes how much the faculty at the College of Nursing, her students, and the ability to teach future FNPs means to her.

“Receiving this award from the University of Wyoming is a huge honor and blessing,” said Holly Hink. “I appreciate being able to teach the FNP students there in addition to precepting students in the clinic with me. The amazing faculty at the College of Nursing have taken me under their wing and taught me a lot about teaching, and I am lucky to call them my colleagues.”

Join us in congratulating Holly Hink on her recent recognition of clinical and teaching excellence. Campbell County Health is honored to have such a devoted practitioner who provides care to our community’s youth at the Kid Clinic and who selflessly devotes time and effort to growing the next generation of Excellence Every Day.
