WITC-Superior Distinguished Alumni recognized

(6/16/14): Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College is proud to recognize Hilary Lambert, a 2005 graduate of the nursing program, as WITC-Superior’s distinguished alumni for 2014. Lambert is currently employed at Essentia Health as a nurse practitioner.

“I knew I wanted a career in which I was able to work with people and help them,” Lambert said. “I also wanted to work with people from birth to end of life, so nursing gave me the opportunity to do that. Nursing also gives you the opportunity to work in various rolls and diverse populations.”

Lambert furthered her education and received a doctor of nursing practice in 2013, completing her doctoral project titled “Oral Health for Underserved Populations: Provider Education”. She helped to create an oral health educational program within area Head Starts as well as a local community health clinic. Lambert is a board certified family nurse practitioner and has completed two medical mission trips to Belize. Lambert was also selected to be a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and is a member of the Northern Nurse Practitioner Association and Oncology Nursing Society.

“What I learned while at WITC has become inherent in who I am each and every day,” Lambert explained. “The skills and knowledge that I gained at WITC gave me the foundation to start my career and further my education. I feel that I impact other younger nurses in helping them prepare for their career by encouraging them to rely on their training, but also to always be asking questions and taking every opportunity to learn something new. You don’t ever want to stop learning. There is always something more to learn and more education available out there we just need to have the motivation to go out and pursue it.”

In her free time, Lambert has taught Sunday school and organized Christmas programs at her church. She also volunteers her time bell ringing for the local Salvation Army and helps with Grandma’s Marathon.
