Sue Adams, MSN, FNP, APRN – BC

Sue Adams

Director of Health Services

Sue is the Director of Health Services for 3D Leadership Consultants. She plays an important role to both clients and the 3D team. Sue earned her master’s degree in Nursing (MSN) with a specialty as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from Pace University at Lienhard School of Nursing in Pleasantville, New York (NY). In addition to her role with 3D Consultants, Sue works as Lead Nurse Practitioner at Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center in Yankers, NY and as a Pediatric Clinical Instructor, Adjunct Faculty at Pace University in Pleasantville, NY.

Prior to her work at Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center, Sue worked for five years as the NP for the City School District of New Rochelle in New York. During her time in New Rochelle, Sue reported to the Medical Director in the delivery of health care services to approximately 15,000 students in New Rochelle’s public and private schools. Her duties included student physical assessments, pre-participation examinations for inter-scholastic sports, consultations for students with special medical needs and the delivery of health education programs. It was during this time she became aware of student health needs and familiar with the New York City School district health rules and regulations.

Sue oversees the creation of appropriate and effective Individual Health Plans (IHP) for students addressing issues such as drug rehabilitations, infectious disease and cancer treatment. IHPs are key in ensuring continuity of care at school and home.  These coordinated care plan open up communication among all individuals involved in the child’s environment including the treating physician, school physician, school nurse (if applicable), parents, administrator and the coaches. For those schools that may not have the budget for a nurse on staff, having quick access to a qualified, vetted NP with a psychiatric background on the 3D team has proven invaluable.
