Kate Cornella, Director of Nursing

Kate has been a nurse for 17 years.  She moved to Las Vegas from Colorado with her husband and 7 children in February of 2013. She has many years of experience in acute and post-acute settings as both a primary RN and as a nurse leader.

Kate's background is primarily working in a medical/surgical hospital setting on the neuro, orthopedic and floors as an RN and a Charge Nurse/Clinical Supervisor. In the hospital setting, she was responsible for coordinating and overseeing all aspects of patient care between physicians, patients and families, as well as providing service recovery. Kate also has several years of home health experience, both as a case manager providing hands on care and as the Director of Nursing for an accredited Medicare agency in Las Vegas.

Kate's passion for nurse leadership and the delivery of quality patient care has driven her success. She has worked extensively as a nurse preceptor, training and mentoring new graduate nurses and guiding them in developing their nursing practice as fierce and passionate patient advocates, striving to accept only excellence in the delivery of care.

Kate's love for people drives her. She strives to be a servant leader and make myself available 24/7 to my patients and to her employees as a resource, an advocate, and a friend. Kate believes in caring for all patients with the same high standard as she would expect for her own family and friends. Kate is thrilled to be working at BrightStar and uphold the company’s Standard of Excellence.
