She had dreams of solving crimes and providing comic relief but in the end, Susan Rux, PhD, MSN, RN, PHN, ACNS-BC, CHEP, CNE, CPRW, NEA-BC, dean of academic affairs at Chamberlain University’s North Brunswick campus and a Master of Science in Nursing, passed on life as a Federal Bureau of Investigations agent or improv star on Saturday Night Live to help others.
Nursing is Part of Her Core
The first in her family to attend college and the sole PhD graduate, the East Coast native has spent more than 25 years in the healthcare field and believes “being a nurse is a strong core of my existence. I value the human experience and care for others in the manner that I want others to care for my family members. It is through this practice that I teach others the same basics of nursing principles.”
Susan is a decorated nurse educator and administrator who joined Chamberlain three years ago and continues to Step Forward in and out of the healthcare arena. She serves as a board member on several professional organizations including the New Jersey State Nurses Association, March of Dimes and Nightingale Awards of Pennsylvania. She also presents on improv as it relates to the engagement of high-performing teams and active learning strategies to local, regional, and national venues – inclusive of healthcare, business and educational sectors.
Chamberlain or Bust
Susan is pro-Chamberlain for many reasons including the “progressive environment” that encircles care, limitless opportunities and Teamwork, Energy, Accountability, Community and Heart (TEACH) values.
Representing Chamberlain at STTI Conference
Along with many other Chamberlain colleagues and alumni, Susan will present her abstract Registered Nurses’ Lived Experiences of Peer-to-Peer Incivility in the Workplace for a podium presentation at the upcoming Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society’s 31st International Nursing Research Congress in Abu Dhabi this July. Honorees received congratulatory emails stating the submitted abstracts were exceptional and the accepted presentations “are an excellent reflection of current nursing trends and timely issues.”
