Shaeffer, Joseph, Joe
Faculty & Staff
Joe, like his parents, has devoted his entire life to helping people. Joe found his calling for nursing while watching the care given to his ailing mother in his late teen years. The care and compassion displayed by the James Cancer Hospital nurses inspired him to enter the nursing profession. While living out his dream through nursing, Joe realized that he could help more people by sharing his passion for nursing through teaching. Helping nursing students grow and thrive allows Joe to touch the lives of so many more people. Thus fulfilling his ultimate goal to just help when able. Joe's favorite quote is "Life is not measured by the wealth you obtain, But by the impact you have on others (unknown author).
