Angie Foster is a 1995 graduate of Oral Roberts University Anna Vaughn School of Nursing. Since graduation, Angie has been working as a nurse in a variety of pediatric settings at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Over the past 25 years, Angie has been successful in both the bedside staff nurse and charge nurse positions. She has also served as a committee member on the hospital Nurse Practice Leadership Council and as a committee chair on the Unit Based Council in the Pediatric ICU and Pediatric ER. Over the years, Angie served as a mentor to many nursing students and new graduate nurses. These times of investing in the lives and careers of upcoming and new nurses through mentorship were what enabled Angie to be honored with the St. Francis Hospital Nurse Mentor of the Year Award in 2011 and what also prompted her to pursue a degree in Nursing Education. Angie graduated with her MSN Education from Oklahoma Wesleyan University in 2018.
Since she was a child, Angie has felt a call from the Lord to use her nursing to share the love of God with others around the world through medical missions. Angie graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center with a Missions focus in 1998. She has since been able to participate in medical mission trips to several countries, including leading the junior level nursing students to Ghana Africa for international pediatric nursing clinicals the last two years.
When the Lord led Angie back to Oral Roberts University in 2016, she served as a Nursing Simulation Lab Specialist while working on her MSN. Since obtaining her MSN Education, Angie has been an instructor in the BSN program teaching in the Pediatrics and Maternal Child Nursing courses. In the classroom, Angie teaches the students essential nursing concepts, enhances their critical thinking, and fosters their growth in their relationship with God. For Angie, one the of most rewarding aspects of teaching nursing students at ORU is watching the students grow in their nursing skill set then step out and be used by God as an instrument for His glory.
Angie is committed to continuing education, as such, she is in pursuing her DNP in Family Nurse Practitioner. She will complete her degree in fall of 2022.
Angie and her husband Stephen have four amazing children and are actively involved in serving their local church.
