Frontier Nursing University (FNU) seeks to empower its students to make a difference in their communities and in their field.
This month, we are highlighting several individuals and groups of students who have been recently recognized for their accomplishments and pursuits to advance their education and enhance the care they provide.

Kindly hosted by Birth Care & Women’s Health birth center in Alexandria, Va. 12 total FNU representatives attended, including two preceptors, a third-term student, a first-term student, FNU RCF Dwynn Golden, FNU Course Coordinator Amy Nassar with her daughter and the three presenters.
Congratulations to the following students for successful presentation of their cases:
- Cassandra Woods, DNP Class 33

A big thank you to our host, Birth Care! It has proved an amazing clinical site for FNU students. Birth Care just celebrated 31 years in practice with services including home births and births at the center, and has consistently allowed FNU students to observe out-of-hospital and home births, which is invaluable to their education. Thank you, Birth Care!
DNP graduate celebrates commencement ceremony at work
Newly-minted FNU graduate Barbara “Bobbi” Bennett-Wolcott, DNP, CNM, celebrated her graduation in an unconventional way. Unfortunately, Bobbi could not attend the FNU commencement ceremony in October. To give her the celebration she deserved, her colleagues at Palouse Medical P.S. brought the ceremony to her!
Bobbi brought her graduation regalia to the office, and the Palouse Medical staff surprised her with a commencement “ceremony,” complete with a graduation walk, signs, and sparkling beverages.
“Palouse Medical is proud when any staff members seek opportunities to further their education and expand their skill-sets, but we are particularly excited knowing that all the hard work that Bobbi has put forth to achieve this degree will immediately become a benefit to the care she provides within our clinic and medical community,” Palouse Medical said in its Facebook post marking the occasion.
Congrats, Bobbi – we are so proud of you! And, of course, thanks to Palouse and all of Bobbi’s cheerleaders, supporting her during her doctoral program!
Congratulations to each of these students for representing FNU in their hard work.
