Hello, I am Ann Teske. My bachelor and master’s degrees in nursing are from the University of Iowa where I serve on the Dean’s advisory board and am a member of the Board of Trustees for the University of Iowa Alumni Association representing the College of Nursing. My doctorate degree is from The Ohio State University in education with specialization in curriculum and research.
I have served as the technical writer for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Proposal for the Higher Learning Commission/North Central Association (2008), the DNP Proposal for the Ohio Board of Regents (2007-2008), and for the CCNE (2005) and NLNAC (2006) accreditation reports for the Department of Nursing.
My previous position was Executive Director for the Institute for Health and Human Services at Ohio University (1994-2002). In that position, I was one of three authors of the Ohio Rural Health Plan. My portion was to develop the Critical Access Hospital Program for Ohio (Ohio Flex Program) and along with two associates provided the electronic evaluation for the first three years of the program for the federal government. This fall I have been engaged in an exploratory/descriptive research project with Heather Reed, Primary Care and Rural Health Administrator of the Ohio Department of Health concerning roles and utilization of Advance Practice Nurses in the 34 Critical Access Hospitals with on-site visits/telephone interviews.
My husband, Doug, is a pediatric cardiologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. We have two biological children and a son by choice (mutually chosen in the 7th grade). Therefore, we have six “children” including spouses, six grandchildren from 2 to 8 years of age. We also have a sponsored teenage “grandchild” Kelvin Mwirigi in Kenya, Africa through Children’s Fund International.
