Dawna Martich, MSN, RN, received her bachelor's and master's degrees in nursing from the University of Pittsburgh and has been practicing as a nursing education specialist for adult learners for three decades. After working in neurology, postanesthesia recovery, home care, and physician practice management, she served as a direct telephonic nursing care provider for an organization with a satellite office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Shortly thereafter, Ms. Martich became one of several training managers for a telephonic organization. Although the organization had a specific computerized clinical documentation system, it lacked approaches to help nurses transition from direct care to the telephonic care environment. After orienting hundreds of telephonic nurses in Pittsburgh, Arizona, Hawaii, Seattle, and Baltimore, it became clear that telephonic nursing care would stay as a viable avenue in the health care industry. She structured approaches to help nurses fine-tune their communication skills and develop an ease with computerized documentation.
Ms. Martich's other experience includes preparing student learning materials and ancillary materials for nursing publications and creating NCLEX-style practice questions for students preparing to sit for the state board of nursing examination. She has actively participated in creating content for online learning courses for RN-BSN, RN-MSN, and RN-DNP programs. She also served as the director of continuing nursing education for an online continuing education company, ensuring that learning material adhered to the American Nurses Credential Center criteria. Her most recent accomplishments include consulting to aid a start-up personal care agency with policies, procedures, quality improvement, human resources, and financial management functions.
