In honor of National Nurses Week, today we feature Amanda Thurber, senior RN to BSN student.

“I have wanted to be a nurse since I was a young girl,” said Amanda. “I even used to have a first aid kit that I would keep to use on my family members or my dolls.”

Amanda believes being able to provide relief and support in someone’s time of need is a gift and blessing that should be shared, and she's spent a career living that very creed.

Through high school and nursing school, Amanda worked as a medical assistant for a cardiology office. After graduating from nursing school, she began a nursing internship program and spent four years as charge nurse on a surgical floor and operating room. Amanda moved to transplant surgery and then to a long term care facility for individuals with severe MR/DD. It was in the long term care facility that she realized she truly missed working in surgery so she returned to the operating room setting. She spent the next seven years as charge nurse in the main operating room, working in all specialties. In 2014 she transferred to cardiac surgery and “wouldn't change it for the world!”

Amanda’s ultimate long term career goal is to complete her masters in nursing education and get into teaching.

“I have always had a passion for teaching both patient's, students, and new nurses,” she said. “Completing this BSN program has gotten me one step closer to that ultimate goal and has helped make me a better nurse to my patients by improving my leadership skills, communication skills and professional background.”

Amanda has been married for 13 years and has three children who she will tell you are the reason she strives to improve herself in every way.

In honor of National Nurses Week, this week we will feature brief bios of faculty, advisory board members and students from Franklin University's R.N. to B.S.N. program.

To continue our tribute, today we feature Mary Nibert, alumnae of both the Franklin University BSN and MBA programs, faculty and advisory board member.

Mary's nursing career has been diverse: critical care, emergency department, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, managed employed physician practices, contracts and collections. Continuing her diverse career path, she recently accepted a new job as business development coordinator for occupational health for Fairfield Medical Center, continuing to work contingent in the ER at Fairfield Medical Center.

"I enjoy working in the ER and caring for those in my home community," shared Mary. "Patients and families remember the care they receive from the heart. Hopefully I make a difference each day that I work."

Mary also taught at Mount Carmel College of Nursing for over ten years, most recently teaching health policy and an ER Seminar. She also teaches leadership on-line in the RN-BSN program at Franklin University.

With "two-four-legged fur babies" (Marley, black lab-age 9 and Drake, yellow lab-age 8), Mary and her husband lives near Lancaster.
"Dr Baumlein's confidence in my teaching has helped me grow as an educator and because of that she asked me to be on the advisory board. I hope to make a difference in the curriculm for the RN-BSN students."

Franklin's Human Resources Programs Approved for Renewal by The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)

SHRM has acknowledged that both the master's degree in human resource mgmt & the undergraduate program in human resource mgmt have been approved for renewal in alignment with SHRM's Human Resource Curriculum Guidebook & Templates.

Having curriculum that aligns with SHRM guidelines is a more than a point of distinction, it's a requirement for creating a viable workforce. Franklin is proud to offer relevant academic programs rooted in theory, designed w/ input from industry leaders & informed by faculty expertise that can immediately be applied by our students.

In honor of National Nurses Week, this week we will feature brief bios of faculty, advisory board members and students from Franklin University's R.N. to B.S.N. program.

To kick off this year's honorees, we feature Dr. Gail Baumlein, program chair of Franklin's R.N. to B.S.N. program.

If you visit Dr. Baumlein's office, you'll find a picture of her grandmother in her nursing uniform. A role model and influence in her decision to enter nursing, Dr. Baumlein likes the flexibility of the nursing profession and the ability to help others during their most vulnerable times of illness and injury.

Dr. Baumlein started her career working in the pediatric unit of a small hospital, eventually expanding her practice to the emergency department, NICU, and outpatient surgery and recovery room. During that time, she was occasionally worked with student nurses and discovered that she enjoyed the role of teacher and mentor. That realization led her to become a nursing teacher, and 25 years later she will tell you it has been the most rewarding aspect of her career.

As program chair, Dr. Baumlein loves teaching and guiding the nursing program. With all the duties her role includes, her most memorable moments "have been when the students create particularly touching and beautiful videos for some of the assignments. I have literally sat in my office and been moved to tears while watching a heart-warming video depicting the student’s view of nursing."

A wife, mother to four and grandmother to seven, she enjoys skiing, traveling and camping.
