About our company

Our Story

Arrowsmith RNs was created in 2021 to address the needs of transplant centers wanting to move donor call management to a third party. Becky and Tracey have worked together in transplant for many years, having worked for a donor call management company where coordinators were managing multiple transplant centers at once.  The new allocation system and the increase in the number of donors has triggered a need for a more personalized and full-service approach. Arrowsmith RNs was formed with the intent of replacing your donor call nurses with full-time RNs to fill that need.

Our Mission & Vision

To act as a trusted partner with your transplant center, working directly with your surgeons and in-house staff to facilitate life-saving organ transplants.

Karina Tweed, RN, BSN

COORDINATOR

Karina’s nursing career started in ICU where she was introduced to organ donation and caring for the donor’s during the allocation period. Karina quickly fell in love with transplant and spent 3 years caring for donors and their families at her local OPO. Karina then made the decision to switch to the recipient side of transplant and has gained a large overview of transplant from the donor and the recipient side. This knowledge helps navigate the many challenges faced during accepting an organ and getting the recipient to the OR. Karina completed her ADN in 2011 and received her BSN in 2018 from Purdue. Karina lives in Illinois and enjoys reading fantasy novels, helping coach softball for her daughter, and spending time with family.
