MANITOWOC, Wis. — Silver Lake College welcomes Dr. Cheryl Passel, right, and Judith Pomeroy to its nursing faculty.

“I’m so pleased to be able to share that the new, pre-licensure nursing program has doubled in size in only its second year,” said Brianna Neuser, director of Nursing. “SLC has responded to the call for more bachelor-prepared nurses for the workforce and as a result we are experiencing anticipated growth in our enrollment. This year, I am excited to announce two additional full-time nursing faulty will be joining the SLC team.”

As associate professor of nursing, Dr. Cheryl Passel of De Pere will be teaching Nursing Research for Evidence-Based Practice, Professional Nursing Concepts, and Clinical/Lab.

She has practiced as a holistic nurse for more than 25 years, with a primary emphasis in mental health. She is a registered nurse and a board-certified advanced holistic nurse.

Dr. Passel also is a RYT 200 yoga instructor (a registered yoga teacher who has completed a 200-hour training program). She provides stress-management classes and yoga to students, faculty and staff in academic settings, as well as to members of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in Brown County. She also teaches at several yoga studios in the Green Bay area.

Dr. Passel earned her Ph.D. in leadership studies from Marian University in Fond du Lac and her Master of Science in Nursing with an emphasis on nursing education from Bellin College in Green Bay. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton and an associate degree in nursing from Palm Beach State College in Florida.

As assistant professor of nursing, Judith Pomeroy of Hilbert will teach Foundations of Nursing Practice, Nursing Care for the Childbearing Family, and Adult Health II Complex Concepts this fall.

Pomeroy, a registered nurse, began her career in the birthing center at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center in Neenah. After 20 years of bedside nursing and educating new parents, as well as teaching new nurses, she furthered her education.

Pomeroy then continued her career as a nurse educator at Marian University in Fond du Lac, teaching OB clinicals and expanding her teaching role to classroom instruction in a number of areas including Childbearing Family, Pharmacology, Transcultural Nursing, Nutrition, Health Assessment and more.

She earned her Master of Science in Nursing from Walden University in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing with an emphasis on education from Marian College, which later changed its name to Marian University.
