Sue White, BSN, RN, CHPPN, CPN Certified Hospice & Palliative Pediatric Nurse Certified Pediatric Nurse

Owner & Administrator

In 2001, I began my nursing career at Children's Medical Center in Dallas in the Pulmonology Unit. The unit primarily cared for children with chronic illnesses that required tracheostomy and ventilator care (many of which also needed gastrostomy tube care).

In January 2003, I worked as a travel nurse at the University of New Mexico Hospital, staffing three departments (PICU, Pediatric step-down, and Neonatal ICU). In the eight months I was there, I gained a vast amount of knowledge, caring for children on ECMO and dialysis, as well as children with cancer. I also worked in the Neonatal ICU, and wow, what a privilege that was!

In August 2003, I returned to work at Children's Medical Center in Dallas on the Pulmonology Unit. Although working at Children's was my dream job, for personal reasons, I moved to the RGV in 2004, where I began working in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at VBMC-Harlingen. While at VBMC-Harlingen I held positions in Nursing Education, Lead PALS Instructor, and eventually Clinical Nurse Manager of Pediatrics and PICU.

In 2008, I moved into the home health industry, returning to my first love as a nurse, caring for special needs children with chronic illnesses. I held positions as a pediatric private duty nurse and Case Manager. I have also worked as relief staff in the PICU at Edinburg Children's Hospital.

Throughout my career, I have enjoyed the privilege of caring for many special needs children as well as serving as a mentor to many nursing colleagues.

I have always felt that the RGV's pediatric population is largely underserved. In 2014, I created Little Miracles Home Health to improve the quality of care given to our special needs children with chronic illnesses.

In 2023, feeling unsatisfied, I chose to continue my education and received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing in May 2024. I also began researching pediatric palliative care after witnessing our patients' caregivers' and siblings' daily struggles. Through this research, I joined the Center to Advance Palliative Care and Hospice & Palliative Nurses Association. I received the CAPC designation for the following:  Registered Nursing Serious Illness Designation, Age-Friendly Health Care, Symptom Management, and Communication Skills for Serious Illness Conversations.

My entire career has been dedicated to serving the pediatric population. I am a Certified Pediatric Nurse and a Certified Hospice and Palliative Pediatric Nurse, which means I provide my patients with the most up-to-date information and advocacy.
