Sylvia Baker, MSN, RN, CPAN, FASPAN

Sylvia has been a nurse for a very long time (look at her!).  She graduated from Rockford Memorial Hospital School of Nursing with a Diploma when the dinosaurs roamed the earth (way back in the 1970s).  She earned her BSN from Benedictine University in 2006 and her MSN from Walden University in 2009.  She became a CPAN in 1991 and has maintained those credentials since.

She has been a Perianesthesia nurse since (about) 1987, having worked in Med/Surg for the first 10 years of her professional career.  She worked full time in Phase I for approximately 20 years.  She currently works as a Professional Development Specialist for OR/OB for Northwestern Medicine at Kishwaukee hospital in DeKalb, Illinois.  Prior to this engagement, she was the Education Lead for Mercyhealth in Rockford, Illinois, where she worked in Clinical Education.  She continues to get her “patient fix” when she makes rounds on the floors and teaches perianesthesia topics for perianesthesia nurses.

Sylvia has been an active professional, serving in multiple positions with ILSPAN, over the years.  She is also an active ASPAN member having served on multiple committees and SWTs.  She completed two terms as Regional Director for Region 3 for ASPAN (the highlight of her professional career).  She is a member of the inaugural class of ASPAN Fellows.  Sylvia gets a “charge” from helping nurses make connections that impact patient care and safety.

She’s been married to the same fellow for the past 42+ years, has one daughter, one son, one son-in-law, two grandsons and one granddaughter.  In her spare time, she likes to enjoy the outdoors and her hot tub.
