NTC Foundation

Alumna Janice Gulsvig

Chief Operating Officer, Align

You never know where your NTC education will take you. In fact, Janice Gulsvig, who now owns a nationwide healthcare quality-measurement company, said it laid the groundwork for her entire career.

Gulsvig graduated from NTC in 1974 with an associate’s degree in nursing. After working locally for a few years, she moved her young family to Minneapolis, where she continued her education and earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota.

“I found that the educational footing I received at NTC prepared me very well for entering the four-year college system,” said Gulsvig. “I also discovered that the practical and clinical experience I received at NTC was far superior to that which I experienced at the University of Minnesota, which tended to be more theoretical.”

After earning her bachelor's degree, Gulsvig worked in long-term care administration and management at several facilities, eventually taking a position in Arkansas as corporate director of education and training for Beverly Enterprises, the largest nursing home company in the United States.

In 2001, Gulsvig and her husband returned to Wausau and established My InnerView, which provides nursing homes, assisted living homes, hospice organizations, pharmacies, and other ancillary post-acute healthcare organizations with a way to measure and improve quality performance. The company has a staff of 55 and serves customers in every state.

“My career has taken me far away from the clinical nursing experience I was originally prepared for,” noted Gulsvig. “I would encourage all NTC students and graduates to broaden their perspective to see all of the wonderful opportunities and potential in today’s ever-changing world.”

Janice remains true to her NTC roots through her involvement with the Alumni Association and her service as a current member of the NTC Foundation Board. It was Janice’s perspective as a student, that inspired her to establish an endowed scholarship to assist NTC nursing students in reaching their goals. She encourages all NTC students and graduates to broaden their perspective on the wonderful opportunities available to them and remain involved following graduation.

She and her husband enjoy traveling and spending time with their children and four grandchildren.
