About the ShiftWizard Team

Hospital scheduling software created by healthcare professionals.

Shane Parker, RN

Co-Founder and Chief Nursing Officer

Prior to co-founding ShiftWizard in 2007, Shane spent 14 years as a nurse. That experience included nursing and supervisory roles in emergency rooms, critical care transport, and invasive cardiology, ranging from a small community hospital to a large level-1 trauma center.

While still working on the critical care transport team, Shane co-founded, grew and managed ShiftWizard before retiring from nursing in 2010 to manage and focus on the company full-time.

In 2015, Shane was one of an elite group of workforce industry experts selected to form the Advisory Board for Workforce Management at the American Nurse’s Association in Washington, D.C., a collaborative effort dedicated to synthesizing nursing innovation and technology to drive quality in health care delivery.

Shane attended East Carolina University before earning his Associate of Science in Nursing from Sandhills Community College.

Shane and his wife of 23 years, Jessica (also a nurse), enjoy traveling back and forth to Charleston, SC to visit their son, Gavin, who just entered his freshman year at The Citadel School of Business, majoring in principled entrepreneurship.

Shane and Jessica also enjoy entertaining friends and family and taking part in a number of outdoor activities.
