Ruth B. Grubesic
Clinical site and On-Campus BSN instruction
Hello, my name is Ruth Grubesic. I was born in Germany, grew up in Illinois and moved to Texas in 1989. I live in Bandera and am married with two stepchildren and seven grandchildren. I have degrees in Biology, Nursing, and Public Health and have been teaching nursing since 1991. I became a nurse educator in Nepal teaching undergraduate community health nursing for two years while I was in the U.S. Peace Corps. I completed my graduate education with a Master’s in Community Health Nursing and then a Doctorate in Public Health with a focus on International and Family Health. I have been at Schreiner since 2012 and teach in both the nursing and public health programs. I would say my passion is community/public health with a focus working with multicultural and/or international communities. I travel each year with students to Guatemala for a study abroad in Public Health and when not traveling for work, I am visiting family in Germany and Croatia. My research has been primarily on nutritional health both underweight and overweight. In 2015 I helped establish and now maintain the Schreiner Campus Community Garden. I love to be outdoors and have no problem doing so because I live on a farm with a garden, cows, chickens, bees, two dogs and a cat!!
