About our speaker
Senior Vice President of Patient Care and Chief Nursing Officer
Caroline Njau, MBA, BSN, RN, NEA-BC, provides strategic direction and leadership for nursing at Children’s Minnesota, as well as patient care services. Caroline was born in Kenya and moved to the US at a young age. Growing up in an environment where she witnessed first-hand the impact of lack of healthcare to families and communities is what inspired her to pursue a career in healthcare. Her favorite thing about being in healthcare is knowing a difference is made in so many people’s lives every day.
Before joining Children’s Minnesota, Caroline was the director of hospital and nursing operations at Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital where she also co-led the Health Equity Initiative since 2017. She began her nursing career in Medical-Telemetry units at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
Caroline earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Kennesaw State University in Georgia, and a Master of Business Administration from the University of St. Thomas.
