Associate Dean of Faculty
Chamberlain College of Nursing is committed to providing quality and accessible nursing education. Most nursing schools incorporate tools for building nurse-patient relationships into their curricula, but Chamberlain has gone a step further and made care of students a part of the educational culture. Chamberlain believes that extraordinary care of nursing students is more likely to lead to extraordinary patient and family care.

Reporting to the Dean of Academic Affairs, the Associate Dean provides leadership for all campus level faculty to ensure curricula are current and consistently delivered in an environment and manner that achieves superior student outcomes while ensuring the concept of Chamberlain Care™.
