Dr. Sino George DNP, APRN, RNC-OB, WHNP-BC

Sino George, DNP, APRN, RNC-OB, WHNP-BC, recently retired as a Clinical Nurse Specialist after 21 years of helping new and expectant parents as they navigated the journey of expanding their families. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Sino says she became involved with healthcare because, from a very young age, she had a passion for helping others and decided to pursue nursing as her profession.

Prior to retiring, Sino worked as part of a large health system in Georgia, where her hospital was designated as Baby Friendly in early 2015. During her time as part of this health system, Sino strove to change practice at her facility and implement evidence-based quality improvement projects to benefit both patients and clinical staff. “In my APRN role, I brought evidence-based practice to the bedside nurses,” Sino says. “If there is no current evidence, we created it through research. Our breastfeeding exclusivity rates were going in the wrong direction, so I implemented the role of Neonatal Assessment Nurse in Labor and Delivery for immediate skin-to-skin care and was thus able to increase breastfeeding exclusivity.”
