Message from the Interim Dean

Welcome the USF College of Nursing, where we are committed to a culture of innovation and inclusive excellence. As interim dean, I am fortunate to lead a diverse community of scientists, teachers, practitioners, staff, and students. This is such an exciting time for the nursing profession with unprecedented opportunities for nurses to influence the transformation of equitable health care delivery and impact the health of the nation. Our mission, as we prepare 21st-century nurses, is to provide local outreach and global impact. Our students are prepared to meet clinical challenges, care for diverse populations using evidence-based practice solutions, and engage in robust interprofessional collaborations. In 2020, nearly 2,200 undergraduate and graduate students will engage in didactic and clinical education across our three campuses in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Sarasota-Manatee. Our global programs in Colombia, Scotland, and the U.S. Virgin Islands create opportunities for students to become world citizens and leaders. We are proud to be a part of USF, designated the fastest-rising university in the U.S. Please take some time to explore our website and meet our amazing faculty, read about our programs and services, and discover all we have to offer our students, Floridians, and the world.
