Erin Kelleher, BSN, RN, recently accepted the role of Assistant Nurse Director for Ambulatory Services at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital.
Kelleher began her career at BWFH as a nurse’s aide in the Float Pool in 2004. She moved on to a role as a newly licensed nurse on 6 South in 2006 where she worked until 2011. She spent the next 11 years in the Emergency Department before joining the team in the Gregory Endoscopy Centre in 2017. She holds a bachelor of science degree in Nursing from St. Joseph’s College where she is currently working toward a joint master of science degree in Nursing and Business Administration.
Kelleher says BWFH feels like home to her. “I have remained here for many years because it has been the place where I learned to be the best nurse I can be,” she says. “I came here previous to finishing nursing school and found a new family of people who have loved and encouraged me over the years. These are people from all areas that have now been to my wedding and were there with me when I had my daughter. Each new department has given me confidence to move into the next role and has provided me with lifelong friendships.”
In her new role, she will have oversight of BWFH’s Outpatient Infusion Center, the Pain Management Center and Cardiac Rehabilitation Program. “I look forward to new challenges and working together to maintain the best quality we can for our patients,” she says of this next phase of her career.
When she is not at work, Kelleher enjoys spending time with friends and family and staying active in her community.
