I am retired from a full-time teaching position in an online RN to BSN, MSN in Leadership, and Health Information Management and Technology (HIMT) program at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Less than a month later, I was back as a Visiting Professor at Chamberlain University in the RN to BSN program and in the HIMT program at UWP, as I love teaching!

I started my nursing career as a diploma graduate (Bellin College), continuing for my bachelor's degree (University of Wisconsin Green Bay) while I worked in a hospital. Realizing the impact a good manager can have on a unit, I went back for my Master's in Leadership (University of Wisconsin Oshkosh). I transitioned to a Director of Nurse's position in a nursing home. It was there that I was exposed to the efficiency of electronic health records (EHR). I became involved in writing modules for the EHR provider, which led to a position with the company training nurses in EHR use. I saw nursing homes across the US, with great variations in the quality of care. This led to a position with the state of WI as a nursing home surveyor and regional supervisor. When a teaching position opened at the university, I decided to make that move. In 2011, I got my Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) from the University of Kansas Medical Center in Organizational Behavior. I genuinely love watching students bloom in the courses I teach.

Teaching Interests

I enjoy teaching in both Bachelor and Master level courses in the Nursing program and in Health Information Management and Technology programs. While I have taught a wide variety of courses, my two loves are leadership and informatics.

Research Interests

I have conducted research and published articles on the topics of caring, emotional intelligence, and leadership.

My most cited publication is -

Tyczkowski, B., Vandenhouten, C., Reilly, J.,Bansal, G., Kubsch, S.M. and Jakkola, R. (2015). Emotional Intelligence (EI) and nursing leadership styles among nurse managers. Nursing Administration Quarterly. 39(2), 172-180.
