We are committed to attracting and retaining the best and brightest faculty in support of our educational, research and policy goals. Our faculty members are high-level leaders in their field. We foster a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment to explore pressing issues in health care and advance the profession of nursing.

Faculty Communities

Communities administratively group faculty by the scope and direction of their work in relation to the school as a whole. Our faculty communities consist of Acute and Chronic Care and Policy, Populations and Systems.
