Today officially marks the last day of National Nurses Week (celebrated annually from May 6-12), and we don’t want to miss the opportunity to say THANK YOU to the all the dedicated and caring skilled nurses within the healthcare industry, including 3 our very own:
- Dawn Dingeldein, RN: RHI Outreach Health Coordinator. She received her nursing degree from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and has been a nurse for 18 years. She grew up, and still resides, near Shawano, WI, and her favorite hobbies include spending time with her family and going fishing.
- Brittany Schreiber, RN: RHI Outreach Health Coordinator. She graduated from Northcentral Technical College in 2009 in Nursing and says the best part of the profession is “working with people and making a difference [in their lives].” In her free time, she enjoys riding horses, spending time with her family, and she and her husband are expecting their second child in late October.
- Roxanne Tienor, RN – RHI intern from University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, Master of Science in Nursing Leadership and Management in Health Systems program. She has been involved with RHI since September 2014 and assists with a variety of projects related to quality assurance and the development of clinical protocols and emergency preparedness.
It is truly a privilege to work with these skilled, professional women who have a passion for what they do and a genuine care for the participants of the Rural Health Initiative. And better yet, they understand the farming way of life!
