In 2011, Nudd moved to Hendersonville, North Carolina to serve as Administrative Director of Organizational Development and Primary Care Services at Park Ridge Health, also a member of Adventist Health System. At Park Ridge, Nudd oversaw human resources, operational excellence, wellness, community health, nutritional services, environmental services, and primary care physician practices.
