As the Director of Nursing for Benedictine Living Community of St. Peter, Minnesota, the American Health Council is proud to recognize Molly Wendroth in their Board of Nursing. Ms. Wendroth brings with her a wealth of knowledge and expertise in Geriatrics and exceptional Catholic senior care, providing long-term assistance for aging patients so that they may live as independently as possible.
With an MSN in Nursing Leadership & Management and BSN from Western Governors University, along with an AS in Registered Nursing from Rasmussen College-Minnesota, Ms. Wendroth brings with her 6 years in her current role as Director of Nursing and 19 years altogether in the healthcare industry. According to her, Ms. Wendroth became involved in her present profession as she has always wanted to work in a career dedicated to helping the lives of others, and attributes her success to never settling, staying motivated, and the desire to be the best one can possibly be. Day to day responsibilities for Wendroth consist of overseeing all resident care within a 79-bed facility, working in skilled nursing care, and supervising a staff of approximately 90 healthcare professionals. She also teaches as an Adjunct Professor at her alma mater, Rasmussen College School of Nursing.
