Nurse Executive earns DNP, attains career goal with son

Education starts at home, and for the Hamelin family, education just isn’t encouraged – it’s a way of life.

Recently, San Diego-based Thomas Hamelin, MBA, RN, DNP executive leadership program graduate candidate and his son, Thomas “TJ” Hamelin, MBA graduate, both earned their advanced degrees from American Sentinel University, Aurora, Colo.

“With the demand for college-educated professionals on the rise, an advanced degree is more valuable than ever before,” Mary Adams, president at American Sentinel University, said in a news release. “When education is reinforced in the home, it often results in achieving personal growth and long-term success for everyone in the family. The Hamelins prove that to
be true.”

DNP enhances personal growth

DNP enhances personal growthAfter garnering 30 years of experience in hospital management and administration, Hamelin, now senior director for operations at the University of San Diego Medical Center, decided it was time to get that final degree. In 2012 he enrolled in American Sentinel’s online DNP, executive leadership program.

“I sought an advanced degree that would support the type of work I do now,” Hamelin said in
the release.

American Sentinel’s DNP, executive leadership program prepares master’s-educated nurses for leadership roles in the healthcare system. The program develops five key competencies: leadership, business intelligence, finance, health policy and health services research.

“It helps me be more competitive, but more than anything, it really fit where I am in my career,” Hamelin said in the release. “I hoped to build connections and share ideas with colleagues at my same level in health organizations all across the country, and that was one of the best parts of the DNP program. I’ve learned as much from my peers as I did from the professors.”

American Sentinel offers one of the most flexible DNP programs online available, Adams said.
