Nash Community College has selected Dr. LaToya McCurdy of Rocky Mount as its 2023 Outstanding Alumni Award recipient. The award honors an outstanding alum annually in recognition of their contributions to their profession and community. She will also provide the Spring 2023 Commencement Address for the college’s commencement ceremony.

Dr. McCurdy graduated from Nash Community College, earning an associate degree in nursing. Her nursing career began at Duke University Hospital, where she served as a clinical nurse in a list of units, including urology, plastics, med/surg and others.

While enrolled in her future doctoral program and working at Eastern NC Medical Group, she also launched her medical practice in 2021.

“The Small Business Center at NCC was a great help and provided me with guidance through the process of opening my own business,” said Dr. McCurdy.

Her practice, NUTRADRIP IV Hydration, and Wellness Clinic, PLLC, is the first and only IV hydration and wellness practice in Rocky Mount.

“We provide safe and innovative patient-centered IV vitamin hydration therapy using customized blends of essential vitamins, micronutrients, and antioxidants delivered directly into the bloodstream to promote overall health and wellness,” said Dr. McCurdy.

Since graduating from NCC, she has continued her educational journey. She became a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner (2017) and earned her doctoral degree in Nursing Practice – Leadership from East Carolina University (2022).

Currently, Dr. McCurdy practices family medicine at NEWH Regional Medical Center, PLLC. She opened the practice in 2022, providing primary care services for patients seven years and older in Nash, Edgecombe, Wilson, and Halifax (NEWH) counties. She also serves as adjunct faculty for North Carolina Wesleyan University’s nursing and healthcare administration programs.
