Waisman WIN Distance Learning
The Waisman WIN (Wellness Inclusion Nursing) program is excited to announce a new series of online training opportunities for individuals around the state of Wisconsin. This series provides expertise, training, and resources through videoconference workshops for individuals who support the overall health and well being of adults and children with IDDs in their communities.

Presented by Marcia Stickel, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Waisman Wellness Inclusion Nursing Program Director
My education includes a BA in Psychology as well as a BSN in Nursing. I have enjoyed using both degrees in many of my nursing experiences. I have worked as a home health nurse and as a hospital nurse on a rehab unit, working with those who had traumatic brain injuries.
Since 2003, I have worked in community nursing in Dane County, first as a nurse care manager for individuals with both physical and severe mental health disabilities at CLA and Care Wisconsin.
Since 2009 I have worked in the Wellness Inclusion Nursing program and currently I am the director of the program. We work with individuals who have developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injuries and who live in the community and work primarily as advocates, consultants, and educators.
