Please consider our candidates for the 2017-10 CNA Advanced Practice SIG 30 Board of Directors:
Secretary: Janece Moore, FNP-BC
Janece Moore is somewhat of a rarity these days as she is a Colorado native. Janece is married to another Colorado native, and is the mother to two wonderful children. She completed all of her education here in Colorado. Janece graduated from Manual High School, and then went on to gain her Bachelors of Science in Biology from the University of Colorado. For several years Janece worked for Allosource, a human tissue bank, enhancing the lives of others in an indirect fashion. However, Janece decided she wanted to be more of a help to her community and decided to pursue her degree as a Registered Nurse. She went on to attend the Community College of Denver and obtained her Associate of Science degree in Nursing. However, her passion for nursing did not stop here. Janece always wanted to do more so over the next 10 years while gaining much valued experience as a full-time RN in a hospital setting she went back to school with the goal of one day becoming a Nurse Practitioner. During this pursuit, she attended the University of Northern Colorado to get her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. Finally, in 2015, Janece achieved her goal of graduating from the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Medical Campus with a Master of Science degree with a primary focus of Family Nurse Practitioner. She is currently working as a Nurse Practitioner in advanced wound care.
President Elect: Jennifer Rodgers, ACNP-BC
Jennifer Rodgers is the Director, Office of Advanced Practice, for the University of Colorado Hospital and University of Colorado-School of Medicine. She received her MSN in 1999 from Wichita State University. She is board certified as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. She is currently a DNP student at the University of Alabama, graduating in May of 2017. During her 22 years of professional nursing, she has worked in critical care, emergency room, cath lab, CV surgery, administration, case management, and for 15 years as a pulmonary nurse practitioner, caring for adult patients from critical care to hospice. She has been a faculty member at the graduate level for the past eleven years. In her past role, she served as the Assistant Chief Nursing Officer for Via Christi-St. Francis, in Wichita, Kansas. There she developed a Community Cares program which is a home based model for high risk COPD patients in which nurse practitioners perform home and virtual visits, as well as developed a nurse practitioner led Transitional Clinic which focuses on high risk patients without a primary care provider (PCP) or are unable to be evaluated by their PCP within seven days. At the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners National Conference in June 2015, Jennifer was awarded the State Award for Excellence. This prestigious award is presented to one nurse practitioner from each state who exemplifies excellence in practice. In October of 2015, Jennifer and her physician colleague Dr. Jackson, received a Health Care Hero award for development of an Innovative New Program. Most recently, her DNP Project “Do nurse practitioners providing in-home visits decrease hospital encounters?” was chosen as the student podium presentation for the March 2017 University of Alabama-Joint DNP Intensive.
To Whom It May Concern: It would be my humble pleasure to have an opportunity to serve as the SIG-30 president elect. During my career as an advanced practice nurse, I have always fallen into roles (either formal or informal) where I have had an opportunity to advocate for advanced practice. I am a highly skilled clinician, leader, educator, and advocate and would represent the interests of the SIG-30 team. I was involved in state and regional advanced practice work within the state of Kansas with a focus on expanded clinical practice and educational opportunities for advanced practice nurses. Thank you for your consideration of my nomination.
