Coming Together: Flame! Forward! Week and Give Back Day, April 2017

No matter how far away, collaborators travel from across the nation for a week-long College conference designed to inspire, motivate, and reignite the passion for what we do at Nightingale College. Together, collaborators are inspired and reminded of the College’s mission, building belonging and desire that help catapult the College forward towards its goal of serving communities. Majority of the week is dedicated to collaborating and developing personally and professionally; however, one day is different. That day is Give Back Day, a favorite among many collaborators.

Give Back Day, April 2017

Nightingale College’s Flame! Forward! Week

While we focus on deliberate development and opportunities to ELEVATE our personal and professional lives, Flame! Forward! is dedicated to all College collaborators and a time we celebrate some of the successes certain collaborators have achieved the past year. We recognize these collaborators with the Flame! Forward! Award. We would like to congratulate the collaborators who received the 2017 Flame! Forward! Award:

  • Ashley Thompson, Manager, Learner Advising and Life Resources
  • Jamila Lowe, Coordinator, Career Services
  • Chase Harmon, Assistant, Learner Support Services
  • Stacie McVay, Assistant Manager, Admissions
  • Chyleen Tucker, Assistant Professor
  • Earlene Cooper, Assistant Professor
  • Su-Ellen Johnson, Assistant Professor

Every year, one collaborator receives the induction into the College’s esteemed Founders Club. Founders Club members are a collection of the College’s collaborators who continuously exhibit the seven values and have significantly contributed to the College. We would like to congratulate Linda Flynn (Manager, Associate Degree Programs) for her outstanding dedication to the College and its collaborators. Linda was inducted into the Founders Club on April 17, 2017.

Check out some of our captured moments of Flame! Forward! Week below.

Nightingale College’s Give Back Day

Twice a year the College collaborators get together to serve the community, an effort we call Nightingale College Give Back Day. The semi-annual Give Back Day is an opportunity to step into the community to go beyond self. We challenge our learners every day to find the compassion for their patients and to understand the simple saying of “walk a mile in their shoes.” Just like we challenge our learners, our collaborators are challenged to dig deep to find opportunities to give back, whether it is a simple act of lending a hand or volunteering at a large-scale event.

On April 21, 2017, a sea of blue shirts with the same logo headed over to Catholic Community Services in downtown Ogden. The Catholic Community Services (CCS) serves individuals and families in need across the Wasatch Front. (Looking for an opportunity to serve the community? Visit Catholic Community Services for volunteer information. Click here.)

Nightingale College collaborators provided a service we do very well, staffed a health clinic available to the CCS community, thanks to our wonderful nurses. Meanwhile, those who do not carry the respectable two letters “RN” behind their name still made a difference and assisted in the food pantry and sorted out donations. Check out our photos below.

We’d like to thank the Catholic Community Services of Northern Utah for hosting us last Friday. What a humbling and fun Give Back Day.

New Collaborators Join the Nightingale College Team

Nightingale College Official Announcement
We are excited to announce the addition of ten new collaborators to the Nightingale team. Nightingale College’s dynamic environment is created not by accident. It is created and constantly molded by the contributions and efforts of the College’s collaborators.

A testament to fulfilling the College’s mission is exemplified by the collaborators who help write the story, illustrate the pages, and set the framework for future chapters. With each new collaborator comes a new perspective and character who is essential to continuing the Nightingale College story. As the College continues to grow and move forward, it is critical to maintain a team of innovative thinkers and passionate instructors.

Every collaborator at Nightingale College contributes to the realization of the College’s mission and vision.

Just as Florence Nightingale’s lamp lit up the night and helped the healing, let the Cradling Flame of the College’s Seal illuminate [their] way and guide [them] on our journey of supporting the learners in their quest to becoming great registered nurses. Once again, I am thrilled to have [them] as part of the Nightingale family!

Mikhail Shneyder, President and CEO of Nightingale College

We would like to welcome the new collaborators who joined the team mid-March and have already been astronomical in paving the way forward.
