I
Lifelong Learner
Reinvents Herself as a
Result of the Pandemic
WHILE EARNING HER DNP/MPH DEGREES, DR. NOELLE DILGARDE HAS
BEEN WORKING FOR THE US ARMY CHEMICAL DEPOT By Dana Brandorff
always liked to study, " says
alumna Noelle Dilgarde
(DNP/MPH 2019, MS
specializing in FNP 2014).
But even for Dr. Dilgarde,
earning a dual degree while
working was a major challenge. " I was
exhausted and thought about dropping
out of the program and just working. "
As fate would have it, she landed a
job with the US Army Chemical Depot
as Family Nurse Practitioner, which
allowed her to work a shift that suited
her to a T (24 hours on, 24 hours off,
24 on, and 5 days off). " The hours
were appealing. And the job was so
different than anything I ever thought
I'd be doing. It wasn't nursing, but I
could use my medical education, add a
dash of sleuthing and detective work,
as well as psychology. It was unusual
and exciting. "
STOCKPILES OF CHEMICAL
WEAPONS WAIT TO BE
DESTROYED. WHO YOU
GONNA CALL?
As a Family Nurse Practitioner at the
US Army Pueblo Chemical Depot (regulated
by the Department of Defense),
Dilgarde ensures that the people who
are hired to destroy deadly chemical
weapons are fit for duty. That doesn't
just mean physically fit. It also means
mentally fit. " The Army looks at the
person from head to toe and includes
psychological and mental screening
