DANVILLE, KY, August 17, 2012 /Worldwide Who's Who/
-- Victoria S. Shadley, LPN, Licensed Practical Nurse for Northpoint Training Center, has been recognized by Worldwide Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in nursing and criminal justice.
Ms. Shadley has been a licensed practical nurse since 1995. She followed in the footsteps of her grandmother, who was a nurse, and her mother, who worked in the medical field. After enjoying a 20-year career in the U.S. Army, she retired in 2010. She worked at a veterans' retirement home for a year, and recently took a position at Danville Center for Health and Rehabilitation until she was able to be hired on to her current position. Northpoint Training Center is a correctional center which helps Ms. Shadley combine her nursing skills with her education in criminal justice, which includes a Bachelor of Science from Troy University earned cum laude in 2009. She specializes in gerontology, criminology and nursing, she administers medication and treatments, manages medical emergencies, takes patients into the emergency room and transfers them to another facility if necessary. Within the next five years, she hopes to become a registered nurse.
Ms. Shadley notes that she took advantage of all the training, opportunities and deployments she was offered in the Army; she also earned numerous military awards and decorations along the way, such as Kentucky's Colonel and the Commandant's List for the Academy of Health Sciences in the U.S. Army. She sums up the tremendous impact that military service had on her life by saying, "The principles of leadership and standards that Soldiers live by have taught me how to handle a multitude of situations. The experiences and training I received are more than I would have received [at] any other job. The military trains you to take care of each other and never leave a man behind. In a 'me-me-me' world, it is so good to work with people who care about each other and those around them." After many years of success in her career, she highlights working with other countries in the U.S. Army, helping people who were sick or injured and teaching them how to help themselves by taking preventive steps in health care. She highly values the many opportunities she had to learn, share and grow. Because these experiences have been so meaningful in her own life, she urges people in civilian life to volunteer to help out somewhere, take a class, or even just share cup a coffee with a shut-in. "Trust me, it will
be worth your time to expand your world," she says. She credits her accomplishments to the high standards that she acquired through the U.S. Army.
Keeping abreast of changes in the industry, Ms. Shadley is a member of the American Heart Association and the Nurse's Service Organization. In her spare time, she enjoys outdoors activities such as whitewater rafting, horseback riding, water sports, traveling and spending time with her family. Additionally, she volunteers her time with St. Jude's Children's Hospital and the Army Community Service.
