Faculty Member Retires

Susan Casey

Susan M. Casey, RN, PhD
Associate Dean of Graduate Programs — Nursing
Associate Professor of Nursing

In her 10 years in the School of Health Sciences, Susan Casey has brought both change and stability to Seattle Pacific University’s graduate programs in nursing. Through her leadership, SHS has been able to extend its reach into the community, helping to make SPU master’s graduates among the most highly recruited.

Susan came to Seattle Pacific in 2004 as an adjunct in the MSN program. She was appointed as the director of research and development for the 2005–06 academic year, and gathered data about future offerings in the MSN program. The following year she was appointed associate professor and director of the Master of Science in Nursing program. Finally, in 2008, she was appointed as associate dean of the graduate program. Prior to her arrival at SPU, Susan was a post-doctorate senior research fellow at the University of Washington, and her teaching was in the areas of pediatric nursing and research methods.

Susan will be as active in retirement as she has been in practice. Her plans for retirement include spending time with her husband, Pete, both at home and on the road in their RV.
