The Spring 2021 issue of the Frontier Nursing University Quarterly Bulletin takes a close look at the many ways that FNU alumni, students, faculty, staff, volunteers, and donors impact the university and its mission. Leading the way is a tribute to Kitty Ernst, who announced her retirement from FNU earlier this year. She looks back at her remarkable career, including her 70 years of involvement with FNU, in her own words, while President Dr. Susan Stone and others share their own thoughts and memories about Kitty.
Additional articles share news of incredible awards and honors, an amazing new scholarship, and faculty serving in leadership roles both in and outside of the university. Additionally, we feature two recent graduates, Dr. Rachel Sheman and Dr. Sybill Myers, who completed their final quality improvement projects during the heart of the pandemic.
For even more inspiration, please read the story about Patty Coldiron, who went from high school dropout and personal tragedy to opening her own urgent care clinic in rural Harlan, Kentucky, earlier this year.
We also mourn the recent passing and reflect on the impact of two FNU faculty members, Ruth Elsasser and Jan Weingrad Smith, as well as that of Judith Rooks, a nursing legend who was awarded an honorary doctorate from FNU in 2012.
These are just a few of the stories you will read in this issue, which also includes all the news, notes, and updates common to every issue of the FNU Quarterly Bulletin.
