GILLETTE, Wyo. — A Kid Clinic nurse practitioner recently received recognition from the University of Wyoming for teaching and clinical excellence, Campbell County Health announced today.

Holly Hink has delivered exceptional patient care over the past 20 years, the news release said. She has become a leader in mentoring the next generation of family nurse practitioners and physician assistants at The Ryder Clinic, which provides services to children from two weeks to 21 years old. She received the University of Wyoming’s Excellence in Nurse Practitioner Practice Award at the Willow Ceremony.

“Holly is the epitome of nurse practitioner excellence,” University of Wyoming Associate Lecturer and Family Nurse Practitioner Candace Stidolph said in the release. “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 has taught University of Wyoming family nurse practitioner students for two years and received excellent student teaching evaluations, Stidolph said.

“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,” she said.

Hink said receiving the award is a huge honor and blessing.

“I appreciate being able to teach the FNP students there in addition to precepting students in the clinic with me,” she said. “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.”

Campbell County Health appreciates Hink’s hard work, the release said.

“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,” the release said.

Campbell County Health said it’s holding a one-day healthcare career immersion day, Camp Med, this summer. Applications are due May 19. Learn more here.
