Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is pleased to announce winners of the 2018 Fall Term Circle of Caring Award. Congratulations to Rainie Boggs as the staff recipient and Jana Esden as the faculty recipient!
This award is a recognition for Frontier faculty and staff who go above and beyond everyday duties and strive to uphold FNU’s mission and Culture of Caring.
Nominations for this award were submitted anonymously by faculty and staff. A committee then voted on each nomination based on the following Culture of Caring characteristics: professionalism, mutual support, respect, positive communication and inclusivity.
Rainie Boggs serves as the Director of Enrollment Management & Financial Aid at FNU.
The following statement was included in Rainie’s nomination:
“Rainie has always been encouraging to her fellow employees. She is continuously optimistic and makes other employees feel that they truly matter. Rainie is professional to students, staff, and faculty and is always willing to give a helping hand when others are swamped with deadlines. She shows interest in our lives and hobbies with a gleaming, positive attitude that is infectious; I cannot think of another person who truly deserves this award.”
Jana Esden, DNP is a Family Nurse Practitioner and Associate Professor for the FNP Program at FNU. Her expertise is in assisting in graduating students prepared to provide evidence-based, empathetic, and sensitive care.
This statement was included in Jana’s nomination:
“Jana has really demonstrated the culture of caring by being totally invested in how our test questions are quality and fair. She has incorporated negative feedback about the exam review process in stride, working to make it less cumbersome and more helpful and rolling with resistance. Jana goes the extra mile to make the university better for students and faculty. She has taken time on evenings and weekends to answer the phone, listen to and support us, and share her experience. She exemplifies collegiality and caring, taking time from her already busy life and schedule to help the rest of us be successful.”
Rainie and Jana will receive a framed certificate and a $50 gift card, and will be featured in various Frontier communications.
Thank you, Rainie and Jana, for embodying the FNU spirit of community and caring.
