Croswell, MI — Dr. Korniewicz is a nurse practitioner and nurse educational consultant that provides mentorship for new educational leaders in the field of nursing

Dr. Korniewicz has been the dissertation chair and a professor at the Passan School of Nursing of Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, PA, since 2017. She has also been an independent research and education consultant since 2017 and a fellow of the American Academy of Nursing. Dr. Korniewicz has consulted in everything from curriculum development and accreditation to faculty development, providing expertise using active instructional strategies and distance education platforms.

We need to make sure our younger people are coming up through the ranks and encourage younger faculty to understand the importance of mentorship,” says Dr. Korniewicz. “I’ve helped new faculty learn how to become leaders, to teach better, but I really love to see students blossom. Many students I’ve mentored have become very good at what they do. That relationship with students is how I demonstrate my success.”

“I still feel I have a little zip left in my step. I want to be able to pass some knowledge on to younger faculty and younger students so that they can pass it on, too” says Dr. Korniewicz. “The nurse has been educated to be much more holistic and actually care about people as a person. If we don't pass on this knowledge to other faculty or other clinical practicing nurses, perhaps the profession will die and our responsibilities will be left to secondary technical assistants who come in and do one thing and leave. If I can touch even one out of five people so that they can become better mentors, then the profession of nursing will be better and will be sustained.”
