CareSouth Carolina welcomes Adam Gude, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, as the newest provider at the organization’s Bennettsville Main office.
Gude, a Pee Dee native, traveled around quite a bit before ultimately returning to his home area. He worked as a Staff Perfusionist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.
Before coming to CareSouth Carolina, Gude also held several roles at McLeod Regional Medical Center including: Staff Nurse Practitioner- Intensivist service, managing the Intensive Care Units. He also has worked as a Staff Nurse Practitioner- Occupational Health and a Staff Nurse Practitioner- Cardiothoracic Surgical Associates.
Ultimately, he said it was a passion for rural healthcare that drew him to CareSouth Carolina.
“When I was teaching, I found myself advocating students to practice in rural healthcare,” Gude said. “There’s a higher need and challenge that comes with providing services in rural areas because of the lower access to care.”
Gude attended Clemson University where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology. He also received a Bachelor of Science in Circulation Technology at The Ohio State University, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, a Master of Science in Nursing (Family Nurse Practitioner) and ultimately a Doctorate of Nursing Practice from Francis Marion University.
Gude said he enjoys working with his fellow CareSouth Carolina colleagues and finding ways to better provide services to the Pee Dee community.
“I’m passionate about patient-centered care,” Gude said. “It’s all about helping those in the community and trying to improve the healthcare experience that they may not have access to otherwise.”
Outside of work, Gude enjoys spending time with his family and children, attending Clemson football games and going to the beach.
