Amy Berns recipient of the Dr. Roger C. Rademacher Memorial Scholarship for Clinical Excellence

The Crossing Rivers Health Foundation is proud to recognize Amy Berns as the most recent recipient of the Dr. Roger C. Rademacher Memorial Scholarship for Clinical Excellence. Amy recently obtained her Master of Science in Nursing – Leadership and Management from Western Governor’s University.

Amy stated, “Returning to school and earning an MSN has always been a personal goal of mine, as I genuinely love education and learning.” She shared that, as a Nurse, she is continuously advancing her knowledge and clinical skills through education. She believes that continuing education is essential in healthcare, since it’s a field that’s ever-changing.

While Amy has experience working in multiple departments including ER, surgery, and the medical-surgical inpatient unit, her passion is obstetrics. Amy looks forward to receiving future certifications in electronic fetal monitoring and obstetrics to further enhance her skills.

Amy shared, “This degree provided me with personal growth as a nurse, stressing the importance of evidence-based practice for best patient care, and developing critical leadership skills. This scholarship is an amazing opportunity that all staff should consider when furthering their education. Thank you to the Foundation and scholarship committee for selecting me to be a recipient of this scholarship.”
