Cameos of Caring

Robin Chadeayne - Springfield Regional Medical Center

Springfield Regional Medical Center
Recognition Year: 

When deciding to become a registered nurse, Robin Chadeayne was torn. She wanted to be a music teacher initially, but her family talked her out of that, noting that teachers were in abundance and schools were eliminating their music programs. Her second choice was nursing. She earned her associate degree in nursing from Clark State University and her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Franklin University in Columbus, where she graduated summa cum laude. She earned her master’s in nursing education from Urbana University, where she graduated magna cum laude. All this time, she was building a career at Mercy Health, starting as a nursing assistant in 1979 and moving up the ranks to staff nurse, nurse care coordinator, nurse educator, and shift supervisor. She’s also helped grow the careers of other nurses as an adjunct faculty member with Clark State Community College’s School of Nursing. Over the course of her 40-year career, she has never regretted her choice to pursue nursing. “I have never had to worry about a steady job,” she says. “It is not a job though, it is a calling, It is who you are, not what you do.”
