Spring Term 2017 Circle of Caring Award Winners

Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is pleased to announce Susan Morgan and Jackie Brooks as the Spring Term Circle of Caring Award winners! The Circle of Caring Award is a new recognition for faculty and staff who go above and beyond their job duties and strive to uphold FNU’s mission and Culture of Caring everyday. One faculty and staff member will be recognized each term.

FNU faculty and staff were invited to nominate someone anonymously. Nominations were then voted upon by a committee based on the following Culture of Caring characteristics: professionalism, mutual support, respect, positive communication and inclusivity.


Susan Morgan is the FNU Academic Resource Coordinator. Susan’s nominations included the following statements:


“While Susan is always helpful, respectful, and courteous to students, faculty, and staff, her behavior far exceeded those attributes during the most recent Bridge Bound….Susan's heart for our students, mission of Frontier, Circle of Caring were displayed that evening through her Inclusivity, Mutual Support, Positive Communication, Respect, and Professionalism. We are truly fortunate to have Susan as an FNU employee!”


Jackie Brooks, DNP, CNM, WHNP is the Director of the ADN Bridge Option here at FNU and is also a Course Coordinator.  The following are excerpts from her anonymous nomination:


“After arriving on campus for Bridge Bound, a student received word that her {child} had been involved in a very serious accident.  Jackie and {staff} worked endlessly with this student to help arrange flights, a ride to the Lexington airport…”

Both Susan and Jackie will receive a framed certificate, a $50 gift card and will be featured in various FNU communications.


We are so grateful to have Susan and Jackie as a part of the FNU Community!
