Anthony G. Gonzalez
Director, Nurse Residency Program
Anthony began his healthcare career as a Transporter at a small community hospital in Coral Gables, Florida while working his way through nursing school. He has since logged over 25 years of experience in various areas of patient care and nursing education including Telemetry Nurse, Progressive Care Nurse, Critical Care Nurse, Nurse Clinician for Critical Care, and now Director of the MHS Nurse Residency Program.
Anthony has championed initiatives such as implementation of a Delirium protocol at a large community hospital system in South Florida and received honors for his work in developing the Pilot Nurse Residency Program at Memorial Hospital Pembroke. As a Nurse Clinician, he was able to observe new graduates and see that training, support and resource allocation were essential for professional development of clinical nursing staff.
Anthony has an Associate Degree in Nursing from Miami-Dade College, BSN from Florida Atlantic University, and master’s in Nursing Education from the University of Miami. His combination of education and experience provide a strong foundation for the onboarding that we believe is critical to a new nurse graduate’s engagement towards success in clinical practice at MHS.
