MaryFran Cini, RN, BS
MaryFran Cini, RN, BS, began working with patients at IRMS in 1999. Previously, she had spent five years as a Coordinator and Program Manager for Home Perinatal Services at St. Barnabas. “I’m kind of working backwards” she says humorously, referring to the fact that her background includes more than a decade of experience working with women and children in a variety of perinatal, labor and delivery, postnatal and OB/GYN settings. Throughout MaryFran’s career, the common theme and emphasis has always been her patients.
“People are ultimately what are important and my success is determined by my interaction with people.”
An important part of MaryFran’s role at IRMS involves patient education. “It’s important that my patients understand what we are doing and why we are doing it.” Not surprisingly, MaryFran spends a great deal of her time communicating with patients—in person, by phone or via e-mail. In fact, she describes patient interaction as the most gratifying part of her job, and the reason she came to work at IRMS in the first place.
When she is not working with patients at IRMS, MaryFran spends a great deal of her personal time pursuing her other passion—rescuing and providing foster care to homeless Great Danes.
Prior to receiving her Associate’s Degree in Nursing from the County College of Morris in Randolph, NJ in 1985, MaryFran held a Bachelors of Science degree in Animal Husbandry from the Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture in Doylestown, PA. She graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1978.
