Nursing

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Luke 6:31

These are words by which Anita Neubauer-Hickey has led her life, both in work and in family, and they are the words with which she credits her success as a nurse.

“Jesus was a kind and caring man who taught that we should love our neighbors as ourselves,” Neubauer-Hickey said. “By following this simple rule, one would be able to work as a very caring and effective nurse.”

Throughout Hickey’s 27 years of experience in the nursing profession, she has lived out that rule, and her 12 years of experience as an adjunct nursing instructor has allowed her to carry that rule into the classroom.

“I have had so many benefits from working with such a diverse student population,” Hickey said. “I feel that it is also beneficial for the students to be enrolled in a college nursing program that includes a multi-racial, national, and denominational student body.”

Neubauer-Hickey joined the staff as an assistant professor of nursing in 2014 after three semesters of teaching as an adjunct at Trinity and with nine years of experience teaching at Lewis University, St. Xavier University, and St. Francis University. She received a master’s in nursing from Lewis University in 2002 after 16 years of experience as a pediatric nurse in Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois.

“I feel that the way Jesus worked with the poor and ill inspired me to also work with the sick population,” Neubauer-Hickey said. “In my own practice, I have always kept Jesus and his stories in my heart.”
