Raeanne was nominated and selected by the students at USF for being a bright, positive role model known for her effective communication and teaching skills. Raeanne says sharing her knowledge with the USF students comes naturally because she remembers what it was like being a student herself.


 “I have only been a nurse for three years, so I am able to put myself in their position. I try to be patient and lead, while providing an opportunity for the students to have real nursing experiences and the chance to adapt and grow,” said Raeanne.

Lakeland Regional is proud to be a part of USF’s preceptor program — playing a key role in a nursing student’s knowledge of competent and quality patient care. 

“Our preceptors at Lakeland Regional enhance the link between theoretical knowledge and the professional practice of nursing,” Janet Fansler, MS, RN,CENP, Senior Vice President/Chief Operating Officer/Chief Nurse Executive. “They are passionate about the nursing profession and taking care of patients.  They serve as a role models, problem-solvers, supporters, teachers, and coaches.”

Congratulations, Raeanne, and thank you for making a difference in the lives of these students.
