Jenni Dosek, '02 Alumni spotlight

A community clinical rotation during her RN-Bachelor of Science in Nursing program inspired Jenni (Limbert) Dosek, ’02, to enter the field of obstetrics and gynecology. After earning her BSN, she worked for two years before starting a master’s program.

Now, Jenni works as a nurse practitioner in an OB/GYN practice in Piqua, Ohio. She’s worked in women’s health for more than nine years and says there are plenty of experiences that make it rewarding. “It’s great for women to be together and educate each other,” she says. “(Nurses) are the providers, but we’re still women, just like (the patients) are.”

Jenni earned her associate in nursing from a community college in Lima, Ohio, before she went directly into the RN-BSN online program at UC College of Nursing. She says the program prepared her well for the nursing field and provided a solid foundation on which to build her master’s education.

While earning her BSN, Jenni completed a clinical rotation in a women’s clinic in a jail, which she calls an “eye opener.” She appreciated working with an underserved population in the community and found women’s health very rewarding.

After completing her BSN in 2002, Jenni married her husband, a graduate of the UC College of Engineering and Applied Science. Jenni gave birth to four of five children while working toward her master’s in nursing.

Of her work as a nurse practitioner, Jenni says she likes that she has time to provide adequate patient education, which doesn’t happen as thoroughly in a hospital. She’s considering becoming a nurse educator in the future.

In her free time, Jenni exercises each morning and serves as an assistant volleyball coach at the high school one of her children attends. She also volunteers with her church.

To nursing students, Jenni says follow your passion, work hard, and you’ll accomplish your goals.
