Alumni Advisors: Teri Moser Woo and Amy Ciecko
By Lauren Cox
The School of Nursing Alumni Advisory Council supports the Dean and the Alumni Relations Program in advocating for the mission and priorities of the school. Each quarter we’ll meet two Advisory Council members and learn more about their passion and motivation for supporting the School of Nursing on the Council.
Teri Moser Woo, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N.P., earned her B.S.N. in 1984, her M.S.N. in Childrearing Family Nursing in 1989 and a Post-masters Certificate as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in 1993 from Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon. A 1993 SoN Alumni Association President, she completed her Ph.D. in Nursing in 2008 at University of Colorado Denver College of Nursing. She is currently an Associate Professor and Associate Dean for Graduate Nursing Programs at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington. Lead-author of Pharmacotherapuetics for Nurse Practitioner Prescribers 3rd Edition (2011), she has also served on the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act Working Group. She holds national certification as a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Nurse Leader and has been practicing as a P.N.P. at Kaiser since 1999.
"I volunteer my time with the OHSU School of Nursing Advisory Council because I believe in the education the School of Nursing provides to all levels of students from the B.S.N. to the Ph.D. student,” she said. “As a three-time OHSU SON alumna, I want to do what I can to further the mission of the school."
Amy Ciecko, B.S. graduated from the OHSU School of Nursing in 2009 and says she was “fortunate to find a job at Peace Health Southwest as an emergency department nurse intern. I had six months of training and within a year of hire became a certified emergency nurse. I have continued as an emergency nurse and now frequently serve as a preceptor for new nurses and students. On a personal note, since graduation my husband and I have been blessed with two amazing little girls. I feel so fortunate to have such an incredible family and a nursing career with so many possibilities.”
