Barbara Lumpkin: Nurse advocate passes

Posted 2 months ago by Vicky Stone-Gale

It is with a deep heart that I announce the passing of our dear friend Barbara Lumpkin. RN. She was an advocate for all nurses in Florida and was very instrumental in getting many ARNP bills passed for us. She was a nurse advocate, legislative genius, a lobbyists's friend, and was loved by all who knew her. Barbara touch many lives in her many years of service with Florida Nurses Association. She had been to many of our South Florida Council meetings and shared her love of policy with many of us as she mentored us to take on that role. This is a great loss to many of us on a personal and professional level. We will miss her infectious smile and laughter. RIP Barbara!
