Faculty & Staff

Experts to help you succeed.

You expect our faculty members to have extensive clinical and research experience, and they do. What may surprise you is how passionate they are about teaching and how dedicated they are to your success. They’re easy to reach outside of class. They’ve been in your shoes—several of them changed careers to become nurses. They’ve had more experience helping adults become nurses than any other program in the region. Their effectiveness is evident; our graduates consistently pass the NCLEX-RN at higher rates than the national average. 

Get connected. 

Our faculty members’ long-term professional relationships in the metropolitan area ensure that you’ll have insightful and rewarding clinical experiences. You can count on them to do more than know your name. Your advisor will be a full-time faculty member. As your research interests become clear, you’ll be matched with a faculty member who shares them.
