Angela M. Bruccoli, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, CEN started her healthcare journey in high school by volunteering at a local nursing home, where she felt drawn to make a difference in patients’ lives. She attended the University of South Carolina College of Nursing and received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1994.
In her 27 years of nursing, Bruccoli has held roles as a staff nurse, educator, assistant nurse manager, house supervisor, manager, and director.

Bruccoli’s professional interests focus on shared governance and improving the environments in which nurses practice and patients receive care. Her current projects include a reduction in patient falls, a reduction in mislabels, implementation of a renewal room for team members to relax and rejuvenate, and reduction of left-without-being-seen patients with the implementation of a rapid triage and treatment area.

Honors she’s received for her nursing contributions include the Palmetto Gold, the Elizabeth H. McCullough High Potential Employee Scholarship through Palmetto Health, and the Amy V.
