Ursuline Honors Faculty Member with Distinquished Nursing Alumnae Award
Ursuline College’s Breen School of Nursing and the Alumnae Association will honor Janet Baker, DNP, APRN, BC, CNS, CPHQ with the College’s Distinguished Nursing Alumnae Award on May 5, 2011. This award is given to outstanding graduates who possess significant leadership qualities and who have advanced in the profession of nursing with special distinction through education, practice and research.
Graduating from Ursuline in 2003 with a BSN, Baker went on to receive her Masters in Nursing from Ursuline in 2004. She then received her Doctorate of Nursing Practice at Case Western Reserve University. Baker has been a faculty member at Ursuline since 2005, teaching in the accelerated BSN program, the undergraduate BSN program and the MSN and DNP program. Since 2008, she has been Ursuline’s director of graduate nursing for the College’s Breen School of Nursing.
Christine Wynd, Ph.D., RN, CNAA, Dean of the Breen School of Nursing, says, “Janet is deserving of this award because of her incredible loyalty to the College. She stepped into the position of Director of Graduate Nursing Programs and immediately began doubling the enrollment of nurse practicioner students. She is a strategic leader and has the vision to take Ursuline’s graduate program in nursing to levels of new excellence.”
The Distinguished Nursing Alumnae Award was instituted in 1995. It was established to honor nursing alumnae from Ursuline or St. John College who have advanced the profession by serving the special distinction through education, practice or research. The College bestows the award to a deserving candidate every other year.
A private, Catholic, liberal arts college founded in 1871, Ursuline College is the only women-focused college in Ohio. Ursuline offers 30 undergraduate majors and ten graduate programs.
