About Carol A. Sword:
As a versatile member of the Freeport Health Network, Carol A. Sword, APN/CNP, serves the Savanna and Mt. Carroll communities in many obvious and not-so-obvious roles as a family nurse practitioner. Perhaps none are more important than her visits to home-bound patients, serving as a community resource for diabetic education, and her duties as an on-site nurse practitioner in area businesses. Carol earned an Associates Degree in nursing from Highland Community College in 1980. In 1985, she received a Bachelor of Science Degree in nursing from Northern Illinois University, where she also was awarded Master of Science in Community Health in 1988, as well as becoming certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner there in 1996. In addition to her nurse practitioner certification, Carol is certified in advanced cardiac life support and as a diabetic educator. She is also an active member in the Illinois Nurses Association, American Association of Diabetic Educators, and the Illinois Society for Advanced Practice Nursing. Her medical philosopy is believing that every person is special and deserves the best health care. Outside of nursing, she is married with two grown children.
