SANFORD —The Central Carolina Community College Nursing Program has four new faculty to its Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program at its Lee County Campus:
Barbara Campbell, RN, BSN, moved to an instructorship in the ADN program from the college’s Practical Nursing Program. Prior to coming to Central Carolina C.C., she worked in the Orthopedic and Urology Unit at First Health Moore Regional Hospital.
Campbell, a Sanford resident, earned her ADN from the college. While a student, she received the Excellence in Nursing Award. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and is currently working on her Master of Science in Nursing -Nursing Education at East Carolina University.
“I am very proud to be a nursing instructor at the college where I started my training,” she said.
Janet Eakes, RN, BSN, teaches first-year nursing courses. For eight years, she worked in the Orthopedic and Urology Unit at First Health of the Carolinas, in Pinehurst.
Eakes, a resident of Lee County, earned her ADN at Sandhills Community College. She has her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Winston Salem State University and is currently enrolled in a Master of Science in Nursing-Nursing Education program at East Carolina University.
“The community college system plays a very important role in our community,” Eakes said. “Although we do promote and encourage continuation of education for our students, I believe that the technical skills gained from a two-year program greatly prepare our students to be successful.”
Robin Gusmann, RN, MSN, APRN-BC, coordinates first-year nursing courses and the Assessment Technology Institute Program assessment and remediation activities. She has been a nursing instructor at the college since 2007, first in the Practical Nursing Program on the Harnett County Campus and now in the ADN program.
Gusmann, a resident of Chatham County, has her Associate in Applied Science in Nursing from Trocaire College, Buffalo, N.Y. She graduated from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill with a Master’s in Nursing, with a concentration in Family Nurse Practitioner. She has her credential as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse-Board Certified (APRN-BC).
Her clinical experience includes working in a Medical-Surgical unit, Critical Care Step Down Unit and Post Partum Unit. As an FNP, she worked in both private practice and community health care centers, caring for clients of all ages.
“I chose to teach Nursing at CCCC, as I received my undergraduate nursing degree in a two-year program,” she said. “The community college system provides an excellent opportunity for those interested in a nursing career to receive an ADN at a college in or near their community.”
Casey Migliore, RN, MSN, MBA, teaches the second year nursing courses. Before coming to CCCC, she was clinical manager of a dialysis clinic. Migliore, a Willow Springs resident, brings a broad background to her position. She has worked in inpatient and outpatient dialysis, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, pharmaceutical research, and management.
Migliore received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Kent State University and her Master of Science in Nursing and Master in Business Administration from Duke University.
“Nursing is a very dedicated field of study,” Migliore said. “I accepted the teaching position because I wanted to encourage and teach the next generation of nurses, especially with the nursing shortage we are facing today.”
In addition to teaching, the faculty supervise students in hospital settings.
