Nursing Advisory Board

To stay on the cutting edge of nursing education and the nursing profession, and to keep connected and engaged with our community, the School of Health Sciences has formed valuable partnerships with clinical agencies, and with professionals from the community who serve not only as Advisory Board members, but also as guest lecturers, student mentors, and consultants. Below are the members of our Advisory Board.

Comprising nurse leaders from some of the top health care providers in the Northwest region, our Advisory Board provides valuable insight into current program issues and upcoming initiatives.
