Office of the President and Vice President


My name is Meris Shuwarger, and I am a graduate of Chamberlain University College of Nursing. I will soon begin working as an ER nurse here in Columbus, Ohio.


I struggle with a chronic genetic condition, and nurses were always the ones who impacted my care the most, causing me to pursue this field in hopes of being able to do the same. I work as a supplemental instruction leader and also as a product development specialist for a nursing education company, as I aspire to be a nurse educator. I live in Columbus with my husband, two children, three cats, and 55 houseplants!

I recognize the immense honor I have been given in representing the interests of nursing students from this great buckeye state, and I do not take this honor lightly. I'd invite you to read my letter in the most recent newsletter, which can be found by clicking here.
