Seven receive new master’s in nursing

Nursing masters graduates

Seven nurses became the first graduates of UW-Green Bay’s online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Leadership and Management Health Systems program at the May 2015 commencement. The degree provides advanced coursework in leadership and management to improve care at multiple levels across the continuum of healthcare settings. All seven graduates — in alphabetical order, Jacquelyn Bailey, Clinton, Md.; Denise Gloede, Madison; Jason Mattson, Green Bay; Martha Pettineo, Lake Bluff, Ill.; Alison Reitzner, Neenah; Ramona Speier, Green Bay; and Roxanne Tienor, Suring — participated in the commencement ceremonies. Bailey, who made the longest commute, has been an active advocate for her profession and met with legislators on Capitol Hill as part of national Student Policy Summit in Washington, D.C., this past March. The new master’s degree gives the UW-Green Bay Professional Program in Nursing alumni in three separate degree areas: the registered nurse (RN) to BSN Bachelor of Science in Nursing, a bachelor’s in Health Information Management and Technology, and the new master’s.
