Finlandia Nursing Program Welcomes Assistant Professor Anne Marie Stein

Anne SteinHANCOCK, MI - The Finlandia University College of Health Sciences is pleased to welcome Anne Marie Stein, assistant professor of nursing. She will teach courses in pediatrics, medical/surgical procedures, and acute and urgent clinical nursing.

Stein has more than 18 years employment experience in clinical and managerial nursing, 13 of those years as a nurse practitioner. Her professional interests include wellness, health promotion, and advancing the nursing profession.

Stein is working to complete her dissertation for a Ph.D. in health science through Trident University. She completed a master of science in nursing, bachelors of science in both nursing and mathematics, and a secondary education teaching certificate, all from Northern Michigan University. She has an associate of science degree from Bay de Noc Community College.

Stein comes from a long line of nurses and teachers, and she is excited to now combine the two roles.

"Nursing is such an exciting field and it can lead students in so many career directions," Stein says. "The foundations they receive in the classroom and in the clinical setting are important not only to gain the information they need, but also to help them appreciate their role in a service profession. My hope is to help develop the student as a whole, so he or she can better serve the patient and the profession."

Stein was born in Detroit, but has lived in the Upper Peninsula most of her life. She relocated to the Copper Country from Powers, Mich., and now lives in Laurium. Stein has three grown children, the youngest of whom just completed high school. She is a member of St. John Neumann Catholic Church, Spalding, Mich.

Stein loves to spend time with her family and her Australian Shepherd dog. She has trained for and run 11 half-marathons in the past several years and enjoys other outdoor activities. For 32 years she has volunteered as a coach for boys and girls basketball, ages three years to high school varsity.

"I am excited to begin helping teach the next generation of nurses," Stein says, adding that she is looking forward to getting to know Finlandia students and faculty and staff. "And it's such a beautiful area to live in!"
