Biographical Sketch of Marie Manthey

Marie Manthey is a Registered Nurse who championed Primary Nursing. This concept has nurses focusing on three or four patients as opposed to floating through an entire ward. This patient-focused approach allows nurses to make important choices in the pateint care and to gather, retain, and disseminate information from other sources.

In 1956, Marie Manthey earned her Registered Nurse degree from St. Elizabeth's School of Nursing in Chicago, Illinois. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Administration from the University of Minnesota in 1961, and a Master of Science in Nursing Administration from the University of Minnesota in 1964. After graduation, Marie Manthey became the Assistant Director of Nursing at the University of Minnesota Hospital.

Manthey held various administrator roles at multiple hospitals before beginning a full-service consultation firm, Creative HealthCare Management. She sold the firm to the employees after 22 years and entered semi-retirement in 2000.
