Portrait of Frederick Richardson
ASNA Vice President

Frederick admits helping others has always brought joy to his heart and that having the opportunity to help others on a daily basis is his reward.

Like many patients, I found myself on a hospital bed feeling scared about my outcome, but the warm and gentle smile from a nurse made all the difference. I desire to be that kind of nurse every day. 

Frederick received his associate degree at Montgomery Community College before earning his BSN at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. As the Vice President of ASNA, Frederick is responsible for membership recruiting, engagement, and retention.

ASNA is a professional organization that represents all nurses. Most importantly, members within ASNA take their jobs very seriously, but still make time to have fun.

Frederick is currently a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Department at Madison hospital. He not only serves the ASNA board of directors as the 2019-2021 Vice President, but he’s also the president-elect for ASNA District 1.

It is a wonderful privilege to be a part of the board of directors. I believe I can share a different perspective as a new graduate that will encourage many other young nurses to join ASNA.
