Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is pleased to announce Patricia Caudle as the faculty recipient and Katie Moses as the staff recipient of the 2018 Winter Term Circle of Caring Award.
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, staff and students. A committee then voted on each nomination based on the following Culture of Caring characteristics: professionalism, mutual support, respect, positive communication and inclusivity.
Patricia Caudle, DNS, FNP, CNM, is an associate professor at FNU. She has also been serving FNU as the co-chair of the Admissions Committee for many years. After working in the field for nearly 50 years, Pat is planning her retirement for next year – but only after she helps write an updated textbook for her class!
The following statement was included in Patricia’s nomination:
“Pat spends well above her assigned hours tutoring and mentoring students. I can honestly say every single interaction I have had with her has been positive and uplifting. She has demonstrated patience, kindness, and encouragement…and never failed to spend a bit of time extending a warm welcome to FNU. She’s a gem and one who will be truly missed when she retires next summer.”
Katie Moses, an FNU admissions officer, is the face of customer service and knowledge for each of the many FNU applicants. She’s been in her current role for nearly eight years, often jumping in to serve in other ways, like running the Gift Shop when other staff were not available.
This statement was included in Katie’s nomination:
“Katie’s patience and understanding along with willingness to help is amazing! I recently needed help and she worked with me so patiently through the entire process, explaining it step by step. She also stepped up and helped out with our students when her co-worker was on medical leave. Katie completed the student and faculty housing, attended the bound preparation meetings and made sure everything was ready for the incoming students while continuing to do her own job duties.”
Pat and Katie will receive a framed certificate and a $50 gift card, and will be featured in various Frontier communications.
Thank you, Pat and Katie, for embodying the FNU spirit of community and caring.
