IENA Board Biographies

Becky Clark, RN, BSN

Becky formerly served IENA as a Director-at-Large and Treasurer.

Becky graduated in June 2013 from Chamberlain College of Nursing, completing an online RN to BSN curriculum in eighteen months. In 1991, she graduated from Spokane Community College with her ADN. Prior to that, Becky was an LPN, graduating from a program at Wenatchee Valley College in 1976. At age 12, she was a candy striper at Sacred Heart Hospital, and knew then she wanted to be a nurse and she will tell you she still "loves being a nurse."

Becky has worked full-time since 1976 and has a variety of experience including Spokane Eye Clinic, Rockwood Clinic, Plastic Surgery Centre, Heart Clinics Northwest, and Sacred Heart Medical Center. Sacred Heart has been her employer for the past 24 years, working as an LPN on the psychiatric units, then on the 6th floor cardiac units as a new RN. Taking time to go supplemental at the hospital afforded her the opportunity to explore other specialties. For the past 14 years, she has been an Interventional Radiology Sedation Nurse, obtaining her certification in this specialty in 2004 and is an active member of ARIN. She is seeking another specialty and is investigating wound care nursing opportunities for the future.

Along her nursing journey, Rockwood Clinic's Foundation bestowed $5,000 upon Becky to complete her RN studies after returning to school in 1984. Other scholarships and funding have been given to her as she has sought her BSN, and she feels strongly it is now the time to pay it forward by serving on the IENA Board of Directors.

Becky has been the Safety Officer for WSNA since 2010, and has been active on her Unit-based Council since 2011.

The oldest of seven children, Becky grew up on a wheat and cattle ranch in Whitman County. She has lived in the Spokane Valley for the past 15 years, has a stepdaughter, two grandchildren, and a huge extended family. Becky looks forward to serving our global community of nursing professionals in the Inland Empire.
