Joanne Thomas '15 RN, BSN, CEN

Assistant Nurse Manager, Strong West Emergency Department
Recently, I was promoted to Assistant Nurse Manager. Roberts refreshed my passion for my profession and gave me confidence that I didn't know I had. So, when a position opened, I realized I was capable of doing a good job and went for it. I thank the R.N. to B.S. Program and faculty for helping me advance in my career and achieve this promotion!
