WAUKESHA, Wis. — OnCourse Learning, a leading provider of workforce solutions and education for the healthcare, financial services and real estate industries, has named Jennifer Mensik, PhD, MBA, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, its new executive director of nursing, medicine and pharmacy education programs.

In her role, Mensik will supervise the educational design, creation and maintenance of the nursing, medicine and pharmacy continuing education inventory. She also will help keep the company ahead of current trends and topics with her active involvement in the healthcare arena.

“The future of education is here, and I’m excited to be a part of a team that is a leader in online learning,” Mensik said. “I am passionate about the possibilities we have to influence and improve education in healthcare, and am thrilled to join a team as dedicated to education as I am!”

Mensik recently served as the director of professional practice at Banner Ironwood Medical Center in San Tan Valley, Ariz. A 2014 inductee as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing, Mensik is an instructor at Arizona State University’s College of Nursing and Health Innovation in the undergraduate and doctoral programs.

“OnCourse Learning is the only company that provides interprofessional continuing education that represents 18 healthcare disciplines, so very few people could lead its nursing, medicine and pharmacy content development and integration,” said Robert Hess, PhD, RN, FAAN, executive vice president, education programs & credentialing, healthcare, at OnCourse Learning. “Dr. Mensik was at the top of our very short list of candidates. As this rock star joins our dream team, clients and customers can expect an even better learning experience from our thousands of educational activities in the days ahead.”

Mensik has served as president of the Arizona Nurses Association and as second vice president and director-at-large on the board of directors for the American Nurses Association. A published author of numerous books and peer-reviewed nursing journal articles, Mensik has presented on quality, staffing and professional practice topics.
