Nursing Advisory Board

The School of Nursing Advisory Board was established in 2013 to serve in an advisory capacity to Dean Glasgow. The School of Nursing Advisory Board members advise and assist the Dean in pursuing the vision, mission, and implementation of strategic priorities in the School of Nursing. This advisory board provides insight into trends affecting nursing practice, nursing job development and job placement. It also assists in evaluation of program effectiveness, program advocacy and promotion with various internal and external constituencies. Members are appointed to the board by the Dean of the School of Nursing and include distinguished alumni, healthcare leaders, entrepreneurs, as well as community representatives.
