Professor Shannon Korzeniowski graduated Cum Laude from Rhode Island College with her BS in Nursing in 1995. She was awarded a Masters degree in Nursing Education from Walden University in 2011.

She began her nursing career in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Rhode Island Hospital before transitioning to that hospital’s Emergency Department, the only Level I Trauma Facility for Southeastern New England.  It was there that Professor Korzeniowski continued to nurture her passion for emergency/trauma nursing.  Since then, she has maintained board certification as an Emergency Nurse (CEN) and has shared her skills through her work in both large academic centers as well as small community emergency departments in RI, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Her first academic appointment was as Clinical Educator to the Emergency Department at St Anne’s Hospital in Fall River, Massachusetts. During this time she was selected to present a lecture series on Emergency Triage and Burn Care to both Haitian nurses and medical residents at the 2011 International Emergency Medicine Conference in Milot, Haiti.  Additionally, she has served as a part time lecturer at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth where she taught both junior and senior level nursing students.  In 2012, Professor Korzeniowski was appointed to the full time faculty at the Community College of Rhode Island. She presently teaches Nursing 1020 at the College’s Newport Campus where she specializes in medical surgical nursing. She also teaches Basic Cardiac Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Trauma Nursing Core Curriculum at various hospitals throughout the region.

Her professional organization memberships include: Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honor Society-Delta Upsilon Chapter; National League of Nurses; Emergency Nurse Association; American Association of Critical Care Nurses; RI Medical Reserve Corps.
