Terry Murphy, RN, MHSA
Director of Patient Services
“Murph” has been a healthcare professional for 40 years. Her work has included
hands-on patient care, leadership roles, and focused troubleshooting assignments.
Beginning as an LVN, then as RN, she worked all shifts, serving in many
departments of a community hospital. Over time, while working as an acute and critical
care nurse, she continued her education, moving from the bedside, to supervision, to
department management. She finished a Masters degree in Health Services
Administration while in her first CNO role, on the start-up team of a new skilled nursing/
rehab facility. Later, at a medical center, then twice in acute hospitals, she was CNO or
CPCS, for 18 years in all (during which she once delivered a baby, in a parking lot!).
Interspersed were turnaround projects at four other facilities. She still maintains her BLS
and ACLS Certifications, and belongs to the Association of California Nurse Leaders.
Each May 6, she celebrates Florence Nightingale’s Birthday. Over her career,
she has mentored many dozens of leaders, across a range of healthcare professions.
Her leadership also includes collaboration with doctors, regulators, board members, and
communities. Murph acquired her first Horned Toad lapel pin in 2018. She is married
to her college sweetheart. They have a daughter and two granddaughters.
