CNS Home Health & Hospice Director Achieves Certification

WINFIELD, Ill., March 6, 2009 - Nancy Capocy, RN, MSN, CAHA, of Downers Grove recently was granted Certified Advanced Hospice Administrator status by the California Association for Health Services at Home. Currently, Capocy holds the position of Director of Hospice and Palliative Care at CNS Home Health & Hospice in Carol Stream. CNS Home Health & Hospice is an affiliate of Central DuPage Hospital.

The Certified Advanced Hospice Administrator program utilizes a case study approach to address advanced competencies for strategic positioning, financial management and legal compliance issues required of experienced home care administrators and senior managers. Participants must have at least three years of experience as a hospice administrator or senior- level hospice manager to be accepted into this program or at least one year of experience and a passing grade of 80 percent or higher on the Hospice Administrator Certificate Program.

Capocy holds an associate's degree in nursing from Guilford Community College, Jamestown, N.C., a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Benedictine University, Lisle, Illinois and a Master of Science in nursing from Lewis University in Romeoville, Ill.

Passionate about hospice work, Capocy donates her free time to speak with community groups on the topic, as well as volunteering for the Christian Worship Center monthly food drive and the American Heart Association.

She and her husband, John, have two children.
