Nursing Practice Advisory Board

To stay on the cutting edge of nursing education and the nursing profession, we connect and engage with our community through the SPU Nursing Practice Advisory Board.  Along with their organizations, these nurse and community leaders  are valued partners for strategic direction, program and curriculum review and clinical practice. Nursing Practice Advisory Board members also serve as guest lecturers, student mentors, and consultants. Below are the members of our SPU Nursing Practice 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.
