Ms. Donnenwirth joined the Aultman family in 1989 as a staff nurse on a step-down unit. Being employed by a large health care institution allows for many career opportunities. Over the years she has been a staff nurse, a project coordinator, nurse manager of medical-surgical unit and a sub-acute care unit, nurse recruiter and nurse educator. When she first transferred to the School of Nursing there was only a degree granting program. She states “It has been exciting to see the nursing education grow into an associate of science in nursing degree and now into a bachelor’s of science in nursing degree”. She truly believes that Aultman College is a leader in educating exceptional health care professionals who positively impact society. Ms. Donnenwirth also believes nursing is about caring for the client, which could mean at the bedside, as a nurse manager, as a case manager, even as a nurse educator.

The radiography field is raising the professional bar from requiring a minimum of a certificate to now requiring an associate degree to take the national registry. The radiography students touch the lives of many patients by assisting the physician with diagnosing by producing quality diagnostic images. No one works alone. It takes members from various professions to compile a multidisciplinary team of health care providers.   

One of her personal values is ‘life-long learning’ regardless of the person’s chosen profession. She believes a successful person identifies their natural skills, follows their passion, and continues to learn throughout their life.
