I am honored to join Indiana University School of Nursing as its sixth dean. As I settle into the position it is my hope to meet as many students, alumni, friends, faculty, and staff as I can over the coming weeks and months. While I am new to Indiana, I am very familiar with Indiana University School of Nursing and its stellar reputation. IUSON faculty are recognized nationwide for their innovative teaching strategies, leadership abilities, and important research that benefits patients and their families every day. They are supported by an exceptional staff that places students and our communities at the center of our work.

Our alumni are making a difference around the world and carry the banner of IUSON excellence wherever they go. Our donors remain loyal and key supporters to all that we do—and hope to do.

I am proud to be part of one hundred years of leadership in nursing. If you are interested in joining our team, I encourage you to explore the website and contact us. I can tell you firsthand that you will be welcomed, challenged to the best of your potential, and part of a very long tradition of lifelong learning and a deep commitment to leadership.
