Shantel Phelps, MSN-Ed, RN
Clinical Nursing Supervisor
I’m Shantel and have been an RN since 2018 and a Nursing Educator since 2020. My Nursing journey began in home health and changed directions to The Bogden House in 2019. I’ve had the pleasure of working with amazing staff and the cutest kids in town!
I’ve had the amazing opportunity to experience versatility within the company by working at every house location, transporting patients, clinical education and preceptorship opportunities, community events, and now experiencing a Clinical Nursing Supervisor role. It has truly been a gratifying experience.
In my personal life, I am a mom to an amazing son, and he was the motive for pursuing my education further. He created the desire for me to be a better role model and give back to the community whenever possible. Naturally, I’ve always been compelled to help others which sparked my interest in Nursing Education.
