Meet the Dean

"We all know the last year has been extraordinary. As nurses fought on the frontlines of the COVID pandemic, the world saw firsthand the importance of nurses. I have never been more proud to be a nurse or to contribute to building the next generation of this nation's most prestigious nurses. Now more than ever we need passionate students who want to be a part of nursing. I welcome you to explore how the Sinclair School of Nursing is the right choice."
