Nursing education is changing as rapidly as the health care profession itself. Patients in hospitals are sicker with more complex medical conditions, and in the community, the patient population is multicultural. Four area programs have adapted to ensure a steady supply of nurses trained for today’s – and tomorrow’s – health care environment.
Notre Dame of Maryland University is marked by a number of innovations, but one of the most visible is a new dean of nursing – Kathy Wisser, Ph.D., RN, CNE, CPHQ.
Wisser, who started in July, was the associate dean of graduate assessment and health care program development at Alvernia University in Reading, Pa.
She leads a department that has received grant money for its successful RN-to-BSN program and the Center for Caring Technology, a clinical simulation lab that opened in 2013.
