Denise G. Burnett, RN, BSN, has been the owner and President of O.R. Nurses, Inc. since 1990. Her passion for nursing developed when she was just 20 years old during a church mission trip to Nairobi, Kenya. Denise soon graduated with her BSN from Maryville College in St. Louis, MO, and moved to Memphis, TN, where she began working as an O.R. nurse. She later became a nursing instructor at Baptist Hospital School of Nursing and quickly forged deep ties with the Memphis medical community.
In 1988, her nursing passion and entrepreneurial spirit enabled her to launch a perioperative nurse staffing agency. O.R. Nurses Inc. has grown into a nationally recognized corporation, staffing hundreds of diversified medical professionals locally and nationally each year. The company is certified by the Joint Commission and has been cited as one of the “Best Places to Work in Memphis” and the largest female-owned business in Shelby County, TN.
Denise has won numerous personal awards including the “Top 10 Women in Business in Memphis”, an induction to The Society of Entrepreneurs in 2010, and the “Corporate E Award” from the Tennessee Economic Council on Women.
Denise is a member of the Association of Nurse Executives and the Association of Operating Room Nurses.
