Ellen McGibben, RN

With Cabrillo College since 2015

I am Ellen McGibben, RN. Having graduated from Nursing School in 1983, I proudly spent my career as a Staff Nurse. I have roughly 30 years experience in hospitals. The bulk of my early years I gained a wealth of experience in Med-Surg and Orthopedics followed by Telemetry, ICU/CCU and finally in PACU. I was among the first four Hospice Nurses in Santa Cruz County, working for Hospice/Caring project at it's inception. During my time with Hospice I developed and moderated the first I Can Cope Workshop Series at both Watsonville Community Hospital and Dominican. These were the first support groups for the significant others and caregivers of terminally ill patients. I have worked at Salinas Valley Memorial, Watsonville Community Hospital and the Santa Cruz Surgery Center.
I feel blessed to be a Clinical Nursing Instructor at this point in my career. The students bring such energy and commitment that it is gratifying to see the future of nursing as they come through the course.
I have lived in Santa Cruz County for over 40 years and in Corralitos for 34. I have 3 grown sons and 3 grandchildren, I enjoy baking, gardening, painting furniture and walking among many other things.
