Utah State University (USU) Tooele recently promoted Brooke Temby from program coordinator and instructor to professional practice assistant professor. Temby, who started at USU Tooele in February, has played a major role in organizing and building the nursing program this year.

“We have a fantastic nursing program,” said Temby. “We are supported by a wonderful community. Tooele reminds me of the small town where I grew up in southern Wisconsin. The people are very friendly and willing to help each other. The students are fortunate to be backed by local employers who are genuinely interested in helping them get a quality nursing education.”

As USU Tooele’s program coordinator, Temby was responsible for obtaining and maintaining clinical contracts, scheduling lab, simulation, clinicals, and preceptor experiences, and teaching lab and simulation. In her new position, Temby will continue her previous responsibilities and begin teaching the didactic portion of the Associate of Science in Nursing program, as well as overseeing the instruction of lab and simulation.

Before Temby began working at USU Tooele in March, Temby worked in a variety of nursing areas, including physical rehabilitation, inpatient family medicine, medical-surgical nursing, oncology, orthopedics, pediatrics, home health, and hospice. Twelve of her 15 years were spent in management. She began teaching five years ago in labs, simulations, clinicals, pharmacology, pediatrics, and mental health.

Two part-time clinical instructors, John Hewes and Michelle Higgins, have been hired to fill the instruction vacancy.
