Rhodes State Honors Distinguished Alumnus
Tim Mosher completed the Paramedic Program in 1982 and graduated from Nursing in 1984. Tim now holds a Master of Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner degree from Otterbein University. His career as a first responder and in the health-care field is exemplary.
Over the years, Tim has served as a RN at Lima Memorial Health System and St. Rita’s Medical Center, Fire Chief of the Shawnee Township Fire Department, and as an adjunct Fire Officer Instructor. He is presently a Certified Nurse Practitioner for St. Rita’s Medical Services.
Tim also volunteers for the Samaritan’s Purse International Disaster Response Team. Responding to natural disasters and medical needs worldwide, he has completed 17 mission trips since 1981. Recently, Tim was one of the team to help Dr. Kent Brantly, a U.S. missionary doctor treating Ebola patients in Liberia, return to health after being stricken with the disease himself. Tim credits Rhodes State (then Lima Technical College) as a turning point in his life where he saw “immediately the impact that I could have on other people during their personal crises. This launched an exciting and fulfilling career that has continued to grow and bring new opportunities.”
A native of Lima, Tim and his wife, Eva, have four daughters. He is on the Board of Elders for CrossPoint Community Church, a member of the Ohio Association of Nurse Practitioners, and is a 2014 recipient of the Legends of St. Rita’s award for model services.
