Meet the Interim Dean

“Sinclair School of Nursing has been educating nurses for more than 100 years. As the profession has grown and changed so has the school. This coming semester we return to Mizzou in our NEW state-of-art building! Our faculty and students are of the highest caliber; respected and sought after for their excellence in education, practice and research. I am excited to begin this next chapter as your interim dean and I look forward to Mizzou Nursing opening new doors.”

- Dean Lori Popejoy

Meet our Students

"I have loved every minute of my academic career within the Sinclair School of Nursing, even the most challenging moments. To me, the most amazing part about it is that Sinclair School of Nursing supported me every step of the way, both as a nursing student and for my life outside of my academic career. My peers and faculty members encouraged me to chase after new opportunities and experiences."

- Madison Herweck
