Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is pleased to announce the 2019 Spring Term Circle of Caring Award Winners: staff member Tracey Wright and faculty member Anne Cockerham.
The Circle of Caring Award is given each term as a recognition for faculty and staff who go above and beyond their job duties and strive to uphold FNU’s mission and Culture of Caring everyday.
FNU faculty and staff were invited to nominate someone anonymously. Nominations were then voted upon by a committee based on the following Culture of Caring characteristics: professionalism, mutual support, respect, positive communication and inclusivity.
Tracey Wright serves as an administrative assistant for Clinical Credentialing. The following is an excerpt from her anonymous nomination:
“Tracey is positive, upbeat and just plain pleasant to be around. I have overheard her interactions with students on the phone; she is polite, patient, kind and helpful. No matter what, she maintains her professionalism as she tracks down the answers to each student’s question. She treats each caller like they are the most important person right then and there.”
Anne Cockerham, PhD, CNM, WHNP-BC, CNE is a professor and course coordinator at FNU. The following is an excerpt from her anonymous nomination:
“Anne volunteered to work with me as I worked toward completion of the certified nurse educator exam and I readily accepted. As a very sensitive and caring person, Anne picked up on my stress and through her caring helped to create an environment that was amazingly supportive of my needs. She is an amazing person and a true exemplar of the culture of caring.”
Congratulations to our winners and thank you for contributing to the culture of caring at FNU.
