Staff Spotlight: Bridgett Lyall

At the heart of Frontier Nursing University is a talented and diverse community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, Couriers and preceptors. Spotlight blogs feature members of our FNU community who are focused on the mission of educating nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners to deliver quality health care to underserved and rural populations.


For many students at Frontier Nursing University (FNU), clinicals are one of the most stressful but rewarding times during their education journey. Bridgett Lyall, a FNU clinical credentialing coordinator, works hard to simplify the clinical experience. She and her team make sure all sites, preceptors and students have turned in the appropriate paperwork in order for students to complete their clinical practicum.


Bridgett enjoys the opportunity to help students  with the clinical portion of their FNU education.


"Students know that I am on their side, working hard on their behalf to make the process as smooth as possible," she said.


The group dynamics in the credentialing department are Bridgett's favorite part of her job. The combination of mutual respect on a professional level with real friendships on a personal level make for a wonderful work experience.


When Bridgett decided to pursue a career in higher education, the history and reputation of FNU appealed to her.


"FNU is open to positive change and has a huge influence on family health and birth options. Both of these were very important to me in my job search," said Bridgett.


Bridgett has been in her role at FNU for almost three years. In her spare time, she likes to bike the Legacy Trail in Lexington, read and play video games with her partner.
