In the midst of a nationwide nursing shortage, many nursing schools around the country have attempted to increase their capacity for incoming classes which isn’t always possible because of insufficient faculty numbers. The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON) has responded by promoting six faculty members to full professorship.
In addition, 19 new faculty members were hired throughout 2016, adding faculty in new specialties including pediatrics, geriatrics, mental health, cardiovascular, community health, women’s health, and more. “With nurses ever in demand and a dire need for more faculty, I am excited to be able to combine the experience and expertise of our current and new faculty to help fill the need for nurses and teachers across the world,” said JHSON Dean Patricia Davidson in a press release from Newswise.com. The six newly promoted faculty members include:
Department of Community-Public Health:
Hae-Ra Han, PhD, RN, FAAN
Sarah Szanton, PhD, ANP, FAAN
Elizabeth Tanner, PhD, RN, FAAN
Department of Acute and Chronic Care:
Deborah Finnell, DNS, PMHNP-BC, CARN-AP, FAAN
Cheryl Dennison Himmelfarb, PhD, RN, ANP, FAAN
Kathleen White, PhD, RN, NEA-BA, FAAN
