Nursing

Dr. Susan Beverung

Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies

"I want students to be reminded about why they got into the field of nursing and that our roles are so much more than passing pills and doing dressing. My hope is that they will be inspired to take time to sit down and talk with a patient and their family or advocate for a change in a medication. I want nurses to find their voices and feel comfortable rejoining the classroom environment after being out for a while."
