Betty M. Ogren, LPN
Betty M. Ogren is an active NOVA member and the first LPN to serve as a NOVA Board of Director. She functions as a Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) LPN at the VA Northern Indiana Health Care System (VANIHCS) in Fort Wayne, Indiana. As a nurse, who cares for our Nation’s heroes every day, Betty is committed to enhancing access, coordinating care and improving the health care provided to our Veterans. She is passionate about developing her leadership skills and making a difference. Honesty, Integrity, Hard-working, Dedication and Advocacy are key characteristics that are extremely important to her. Betty recognizes the significant role nurses play in health care innovations and the delivery of care and is committed to influencing change in the VA and the profession of nursing.
On February 13, 2020, Betty was notified that she was awarded the full Nurse In Washington Internship (NIWI) scholarship which covers airfare expenses, up to three nights lodging expenses, and the registration fee for the conference. She can’t wait to attend NIWI in March 2020 so she can learn more about the legislative process, advocacy, health care policy, and Capitol Hill meetings while networking with other nurses who are also interested in influencing health care in the legislative arena. Congratulations, Betty!
