Stephanie King, RN BSN - DON
Stephanie King began her nursing career in 2001 after graduating from MTSU School of Nursing. She gained experience working in local hospital Med/Surg, Psych, and Critical Care units until she found her “home” at Trevecca Rehabilitation Center. She quickly proved herself to be a leader amongst her peers and climbed to the ranks of Unit Manager then Supervisor, while going to school full time to further her nursing education. Stephanie obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2011and accepted the challenge of becoming Trevecca’s Director of Nursing in 2012. She has worked tirelessly to create a highly professional and skilled work environment through mutual respect and communication with all staff members, residents and families. Stephanie feels there is a need for a skilled nursing facility that has the expertise to handle more critical patients. Her goal for Trevecca is to increase our ability to care for people who need more specialized care than an average skilled facility and are no longer qualified to stay in the hospital. Her ultimate goal is to successfully return patients to their homes and families.
