Staff Spotlight: Jodi Dickey

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 that are focused on the mission of educating nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners to deliver quality health care to underserved and rural populations.


A true Kentuckian, Jodi developed an interest in improving childbirth education and options for women after working on a Thoroughbred broodmare farm. She foaled mares (midwifery for horses!) and started to wonder if women’s care compared to that of Thoroughbreds. Her interest brought her to Frontier Nursing University (FNU).


Jodi is the director of clinical credentialing and has worked at FNU for five years. She answers the call by continually looking for ways to improve the process of identifying clinical sites for students. She understands how important credentialing is to student success and works hard to reduce stress for students so that they can focus on learning as much as possible.   


Jodi’s favorite part of FNU is belonging to the community of staff, faculty, alumni, students and preceptors. She is an avid equestrian and competes in Eventing, Dressage, Show Jumping, and Cross Country. She has two dogs, two cats, nine chickens and one Quarter Horse Paint. Jodi loves riding her motorcycle and helping families get meals on the table with her Pampered Chef business.

The FNU family is thankful to have hardworking staff members like Jodi!
