A tenured professional, Hartman has worked to improve patient outcomes through efforts such as evidence-based practice, enhancements to nursing policies, protocols and procedures, collaboration with the multidisciplinary care team, and more.

For 23 years, Hartman was employed by Fairview General Hospital, which later became Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital. During her time with Fairview Hospital, Hartman served as a staff nurse for the pediatric unit, pediatric urgent care and pediatric emergency department, and provided home health support for mother and infant services.

She joined Cleveland Clinic in 2004 as a radiology staff nurse, became a pediatric nurse practitioner in 2005, and assumed her current position in 2012.

Clinical Practice

Hartman’s clinical experience lies within the areas of pediatric inpatient and pediatric ambulatory care. Additional experience includes pediatric radiology, interventional radiology, pediatric emergency care, pediatric urgent care, neonatal intensive care and home health care.


A mentor to nurses working in acute care and outpatient settings, Hartman assists her nursing colleagues throughout the health system in their own clinical practice. In working with the pediatric population, one of Hartman’s primary responsibilities throughout her career has been effective patient education. As a radiology staff nurse, she developed a photo-diary to help provide education to school-aged children requiring a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test.

Throughout Hartman’s career, she has delivered conference presentations for the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists on the topic of changing vaccine practice in a children’s hospital, and for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, UPMC on implementing a unit-based skin care team. She has also presented at Cleveland Clinic’s nursing grand rounds on contrast agents in pediatric radiology.
