Prairie State College associate professor Marcia Bulthuis was selected a 2018 Nurse Educator Fellow by the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE) and the Illinois Nursing Workforce Center (INWC) Advisory Board.

She was awarded $10,000 to help promote excellence in nursing education. She is one of 18 fellows and was selected for her expertise in high fidelity simulation. Her fellowship will focus on professional development.

Professor Bulthuis has been teaching at PSC since 2008. She served on the adjunct nursing faculty until becoming a full-time faculty member in the nursing program in 2011.

Prior to coming to PSC, she had served as a staff nurse at Advocate Christ Medical Center and Adventist Hinsdale Hospital.

She received a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Trinity Christian College and a master’s in clinical nursing from Andrews University in Michigan.

“It is an honor to actively support the Nurse Educator Fellows program,” said Dr. Al Bowman, executive director of IBHE. “These nurse educators are highly qualified, and Illinois is fortunate to have them in teaching roles in our state as we work toward reversing our nursing shortage.”
