Mary Judith Yoho, PhD, RN, CNE, was recently named the new System Dean of Nursing at Herzing University to help lead the growing program to meet an increased demand for nurses across the country. Her role will involve providing leadership and oversight for the on-campus and online nursing programs.
With more than 35 years of experience in nursing including roles in nursing practice, instruction, research, management, and education policy, Yoho is well prepared to take over support for the nursing programs offered at Herzing. Yoho tells Herzing.edu:
“I’m looking forward to preparing Herzing students to meet the country’s future healthcare needs because the demand for nurses will be strong for many years. We will ensure that Herzing nursing graduates are ready to care for today’s patients as well as for future healthcare challenges.”
Yoho also has experience in student testing and faculty recruitment and retention. She has presented nationally and internationally on topics in test development, exam analysis, teaching strategies, learner engagement, and preparing students for first-time success on the NCLEX. At Herzing, Yoho will be helping nursing students prepare for current and future trends in the healthcare industry including an aging population; nurse practitioners serving as healthcare providers for a diverse patient population; global health challenges; providing care for victims of violence, trauma, and natural disaster; reducing the shortage of nurses and nurse educators; and increasing diversity in the nursing workforce.
