Jenkins recipient of 2022 nursing Alumni Merit Award
At the annual Evening of Honors, Creighton University recognizes alumni who have made a difference in their communities. On Aug. 26, Anne Jenkins, BSN’77, was awarded the 2022 College of Nursing Alumni Merit Award.
Jenkins graduated from the College of Nursing in 1977 and became a critical care nurse. In her years as a nurse and throughout her life, she has used all aspects of her nursing and liberal arts education. She specifically credits the Revs. Don Doll, SJ, and Larry Gillick, SJ, along with the late Rev. William Kelley, SJ, for being spiritual guides. Jenkins believes it’s important to remember your mentors and your alma mater and to consider that there are many ways to give back through time, talent and treasure.
“Anne is the first alumna that comes to my mind when I think of someone who is living out their faith and Jesuit values. Every day she tries to help others and she understands the importance of training and educating future Creighton nurses for generations to come,” says one nominator.
