Debbie Wagner, RN
Debbie has 39 years’ experience as a Registered Nurse with the last 19 years providing nursing education in an acute care hospital in the Baltimore area. She has her master’s degree in nursing education as well as a master’s degree in Business Management.
Debbie has experience caring for patients in the medical – surgical and oncology settings. As a staff nurse, she was drawn to caring for both oncology patients and their families, finding this area of nursing extremely rewarding. Then as a manager and an educator to the oncology/medical unit she was able to mentor new nurses in this rewarding complex specialty. Debbie also worked with nurses throughout the hospital providing education in all areas of medical-surgical nursing, medication safety, and computerized documentation. Debbie is certified in nursing professional development and is a member of the Oncology Nursing Society and the American Association of Diabetes Educators. She has worked closely with pharmacy staff to promote medication safety in the acute care setting. Debbie has mentored students enrolled in MSN programs with a concentration in nursing education.
She is excited to join the MB team and to embark on another journey, caring for clients in the home care setting. She believes in the support that she and caregivers can provide to keep clients in their homes. Debbie looks forward to working with clients and their families and believes that clients can continue to thrive in this setting. She is also excited to be able to use her education background to provide education and mentor caregivers.
Debbie’s interests include music, dancing, crocheting and reading. She makes prayer shawls for her church attempting to donate one at least every other month. Having been a patient herself, she knows the love and care that go into making the shawls and how much they mean to someone who is hospitalized or is dealing with a chronic or life threatening illness.
