OWOSSO, Mich. – Shannon Meijer, RN, MSN, director of nursing at Baker College’s Owosso campus, has been recognized as a Worldwide Leader in Healthcare by the International Nurses Association (INA) and invited to join the graduate honor society of Phi Kappa Phi.

Meijer was nominated for the INA honor anonymously by one of her peers for her service as a leader in nursing education and a role model for nurses in training.
