Alan Wass Information Specialist College of Nursing UNMC
Alan provides an expert level of support to the Nursing faculty and staff in computer hardware and software consultation and problem resolution.
Alan's patient demeanor is a big help in keeping up with the computer demands of about 150 faculty and staff in the four divisions of the college – the farthest one being 450 miles away. He serves the Omaha, Lincoln, Kearney and Scottsbluff facilities, and pays regular visits to each of them.
This year's special challenge for Alan was replacement of computer wiring, some of which dated back to 1976. He generously spent time in the evening and on week-ends to make sure people's work was not interrupted during this process.
