Rachel Moseley, this year’s WOC Nurse of the Year, is recognized as the voice of reason ignoring emotion and gestalt and relying on evidence-based practice with an invested concern for the right intervention for the right patient at the right time.

She was also recognized as a rising support surface expert with the 2019 NPUAP Support Surface Initiative Scholar. Her efforts in pressure redistribution and injury prevention keep step with technological innovations as demonstrated in a 2 year toil to seek capital investments of the latest interactive pressure mapping opportunities for our most vulnerable adult populations.

Rachel never misses a teaching moment be it an international workshop, provider, nursing student or a WOC nursing applicant. She has been deeply engaged as an active member in the WOC society Greater Baltimore Affiliate and MAR region. She has presented numerous posters, presentations and supported a recent ostomy workshop to showcase WOC professional practice. She also actively participated in 2019 MAR conference planning committee and as the poster contact/reviewer.

Rachel was recognized for advancing and celebrating diversity and inclusiveness in the Johns Hopkins culture and environment. As president of the LGBTQ+ and Allies Employee Resource Group, she led an energized internal awareness with support and educational events related to the LTGBQ community.

Congratulations Rachel!
