An Oregon native, Candace Campbell came to the nursing profession through a  circuitous route. After earning a BA in Speech Communications/Theatre, and working as a flight attendant and PR rep for Pan American World Airways, she experienced a career  epiphany one day  en route to Karachi, Pakistan from New Delhi, India, and felt “called” to become a nurse.

Her nursing career began in Psychiatry, working with many Vietnam Vets at the VA Hospital in Southern California. That experience led to research within the medical community about PTSD, and the moral distress of medical personnel working in a war zone. The result later became a film script and a novel called Walking Point.

Candy (as her friends call her) began her clinical practice in Labor and Delivery in 1982, and transitioned to  neonatalogy  in 1989 (you do the math). She received her Neonatal Certificate and specialty training at Loma Linda University Medical Center, where she gained experience working with neonatal heart transplant cases.

The blending of her research and passion to share knowledge about the psycho-social implications of having a premature baby compelled her to create the documentary film, Micropremature Babies: How Low Can You Go?

Dr, Campbell also worked as an educator and administrator for the State of California Newborn Hearing Screening Program, and now maintains an assistant professor post as the Maternity Faculty Lead in the Graduate School of Nursing and Health Professions at the University of San Francisco (of the 25 top-rated nursing schools in the US).

Candy has appeared on  ABC, CBS, CNN, COX,  and CRN  networks speaking on prematurity and related topics. Her articles on maternal-child health issues have appeared online and in peer-reviewed publications.

She is the mother of three grown children, and a card-carrying member of several associations, mainly beginning with the letter “a,” including the ANA, AFI, AONE, ASCAP, AFTRA-SAG, ANN, ASOPA, AWHONN, and ACHE.
