Currently a Registered Director of Health for Carolina Village, Velda Capps is being recognized by the American Health Council, as one of America’s “Best in Nursing” for her 40+ years of excellent service within the healthcare industry. With expertise in Communication and Nursing, Capps has worked and served as an RN on floor duty for several years, honored with The Longest Tenure Award in 2012.
Receiving her RN degree from the Fletcher School of Nursing in 1972, Capps became involved in her profession after being exposed to nursing at an early age. Her aunt, a nurse, further inspired Ms. Capps to enter the nursing field, and attributes her success to her passion for Geriatrics and her ability to build relationships with her patients.

She shares her workplace’s mission of making each resident the heart and soul, as well as the very lifeblood of Carolina Village, being among like-minded, friendly, and vibrant healthcare professionals.
Ms. Capps cites her marriage to her husband, Jake and helping raise her fifteen grandchildren as personal achievements.
During her free time, she enjoys gardening, beach-hopping, and spending time with family.
