PHILADELPHIA (September 11, 2019) – Anne Jadwin, MSN, RN, AOCN, NE-BC, was honored with the 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award from Gwynedd Mercy University, where she received her Master of Science in Nursing in 1990. Jadwin is Vice President of Nursing Services and Chief Nursing Officer at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

The award recognizes the achievements of outstanding alumni whose “personal lives, professional achievements, and community service exemplify the objectives of their alma mater.” Jadwin received the award at the Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner on September 6.

“My ultimate career goal, my dream job, was to be chief nursing officer so that I could be in a position to broadly influence nursing and patient care within an organization. The excellent faculty that I met and rigorous education I received at GMercyU prepared me very well for my roles in nursing administration,” Jadwin said.

She completed her graduate degree at the university with a clinical specialist focus in adult oncology and a functional major in nursing administration, which allowed her to play a key role in advocating for nursing staff to have the tools and resources needed to thrive in their work in direct patient care.

After working in nursing administration for nearly forty years, Jadwin is proud that her work has helped shape the culture of nursing excellence at Fox Chase. She adds that she is confident the nurses are “compassionate and competent enough to carry out the complex nature of oncology care. We are always looking to do better and always want to ensure we do right by our patients.”

Jadwin was inspired to go into nursing by a high school field trip to the University of Michigan Health System with the health care careers club, where she was impressed by its size and capacity. “I was also encouraged by my chemistry teacher that as someone who was bright and caring of others, a nursing career was something I should consider,” she said.

Looking back on her career at Fox Chase, which began in 1999, Jadwin said she is humbled to be selected to receive this honor from Gwynedd Mercy University. As chief nursing officer, Jadwin ensures exemplary professional and clinical patient-standards of care and provides administrative supervision of nursing practices.

During her time at Fox Chase, Jadwin has maintained board certification in advanced oncology nursing as a nurse executive, and is a member of several professional nursing organizations.    She serves as an advisor to and member of several administrative and nursing committees at Fox Chase and the Temple University Health System.
