An Example of Nursing Excellence
By Caitlin LarkinNursing March 13, 2013
Carol Burke, MSN, says “What sets Deborah apart is her passion and vision for advancing perinatal nursing, along with her ability to make her vision a reality. She was one of the first of our nurses to obtain board certification in inpatient obstetrics, and she has encouraged her fellow nurses to advance their own education by organizing a program that helps them earn contact hours. All of this reflects her dedication to learning and succeeding.”
To date, Roache has completed several courses toward her BSN and maintains a 4.0 grade point average. “Completion of a BSN will give me a more rounded education and a better understanding of the research process,” she says. “I wish to represent Northwestern Memorial and the nursing profession to the best of my ability.”
