Jody Boes Nursing Scholarship 2019

In partnership with Bill and Pam Welter, the Jody Boes Scholarship was set up in 2017, providing nurses pursuing an advanced degree at either the Masters or Doctorate level with $2,500 to apply toward their tuition. 

This year’s scholarship has been proudly awarded to Jeannine Kelsey during National Nurses Week. Jeannine has been a nurse at Door County Medical Center since 2016. A graduate of Bellin College of Nursing in 1997, Jeannine currently holds an RN, BSN. She fondly remembers her first job in high-school working for Greg Rohde at Union Prescription Center as a pharmacy technician. “Medicine has always been in my blood; my mother and grandmother were nurses as is my niece,” says Jeannine. After taking a hiatus from nursing to focus on raising her 7 children, Jeannine is excited to pursue her Master’s degree to attain a Family Nurse Practitioner License.

Jeannine submitted an inspiring and expertly written application, essay, curriculum vitae and letters of recommendation. Her nursing style is very much patient focused with an emphasis on patient advocacy.

In the award letter, Jody writes to Jeannine, “My vision for nursing is to make a difference in the lives of our community through advancing the education of our Registered Nurses. We, as nurses are the eyes, ears and hands that provide continuous assessment, nursing diagnosis, plan of care, implementation and ongoing evaluation to improve the health and well-being of our patients. Thank you for helping that vision become a reality.”

Jeannine states, “I have been in Sturgeon Bay long enough to see decades of change in the nursing staff. A great deal of that is due to Jody Boes. She has always been very encouraging of myself and others. Within weeks of my hire in 2016,  she personally met with me (as she does with all her nurses) and delivered an open door policy to discuss any questions or concerns I may have. It is very apparent that Jody believes that we all are the reason for the success of DCMC. Thank you Jody for leading by example and for changing the footprint of DCMC and Sturgeon Bay.”
