Chaudron Carter Short, PhD, EdD, RN, NEA-BC, has been appointed Chief Nursing Executive for Temple University Health System (TUHS) and Temple University Hospital Inc., effective March 20. Dr. Carter Short will report to Abhi Rastogi, MBA, MIS, President & CEO of Temple University Hospital and EVP of TUHS. Angelo Venditti, DNP, RN, current Chief Nursing Executive for TUHS, is stepping down from the role to take a position elsewhere.

“Chaudron is a superb leader—a relationship builder, listener and mentor to her peers, patients and students,” said Michael A. Young, MHA, FACHE, President & CEO of TUHS. “It is these traits that first brought Chaudron to Temple seven years ago to lead Temple University Hospital’s drive for Magnet designation for nursing—an honor the hospital achieved for the first time under her leadership.”

“Our mission is and has always been to provide the highest-quality care to patients, and we are confident that the experience and expertise Chaudron brings to her new role will only make us more capable of doing so,” added Rastogi.

In the years since arriving at Temple, Dr. Carter Short was appointed Chief Nursing Officer of Temple University Hospital (TUH)-Episcopal Campus and TUH-Northeastern Campus to strategically align performance measures with TUH-Main Campus. She applies her wide-ranging management expertise across a broad array of nursing contexts including med/surg, surgery, ambulatory care, rehabilitation, clinical research, telemetry, education, accreditation, EHR, revenue cycle and public health across the health system.

Dr. Carter Short also demonstrates deep commitment to advancing nursing education—and the profession itself—at the bedside and in classroom. From creating a new model of nursing education to giving nurses more opportunities to teach, she is creating a path for nurses that many expect to become more common in the future. Dr. Carter Short is often the main point of contact for community groups that approach Temple looking for help with health-related community projects and activities. She then recruits Temple nurses to participate in these activities.

Dr. Carter Short holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Holy Family University, a Master of Science in Health Education and Health Administration from Saint Joseph's University, a Masters in Nursing Leadership from Wilmington University, a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Saint Joseph's University, and a Doctorate in Nursing Leadership from Walden University.
