    Public Health Nursing Director Retires after 34 Years of Dedicated Service


    Jefferson County, Colorado-- Jefferson County Public Health ‘s Director of Community Health Services, Norma Tubman, RN, MScN will retire on August 15, 2014 after nearly 34 years of dedicated service to the public. While many nurses spend their lives taking care of those that are ill, Norma’s career has been spent preventing illness and keeping individuals and families in Jefferson County well.  As a public health nursing director, Norma is known for seizing opportunities that promote health and wellness in the County.   The following are just some of the contributions Norma Tubman has made to the field of public health, to Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) and to the residents of Jefferson County:

    • Receiving the 2006 Lillian Wald Award for her leadership skills and innovation in addressing public health concerns in the community.
    • Achieving grant funding to develop, initiate, and implement several programs at JCPH  that strive to eliminate health disparities while also focusing on the underinsured populations in the County.
    • Implementing the JCPH Partners for Healthy Families Program, a nurse home visitation program
    • Contracting with university schools of nursing to incorporate the Clinical Scholar Program at JCPH improve students’ public health nursing clinical experience
    • Collaborating with JCPH Environmental Health Services to improve child care health and safety in child care centers throughout the County


    Dr. Mark Johnson, Jefferson County Public Health’s Executive Director said, “Norma epitomizes the core values of nursing: dedication, integrity, stewardship, compassion, human dignity, leadership and excellence.  In both her work and her extracurricular activities, Norma is a constant champion of the highest ideals for nursing and a defender of the nursing profession.  It is because of nurses, and nurse leaders, such as her, that nursing is consistently ranked as the most trusted profession in America.   We are fortunate to have worked with her and will miss her greatly.”
