Jeannie Short attended Taylor University for her nursing prerequisites before transferring to Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, to earn her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in 1978. Her Master of Science in Nursing was earned at Indiana University in 1983.

Her nursing career has predominantly been in the maternal/child area. She has had several roles in her 25-year experience as a clinical RN. She enjoyed many years as a staff nurse in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. She also had the opportunity to serve in a clinical charge role and practice facilitator role. Along with these leadership positions, she was able to serve as a supervisor in the maternal/child service line on the night shift. Her final 8 years of hospital employment involved being the NICU clinical educator.

She currently holds the title of Assistant Professor in the Post-Licensure Nursing Program at IWU. She took this full-time faculty position in the summer of 2004 and predominantly teaches the introductory, leadership and management, and capstone courses. She finds a great deal of joy and satisfaction in developing students in scholarship, leadership, and Christian character.
