Seton Hall University’s College of Nursing recently welcomed two new administrators to oversee the undergraduate and graduate nursing programs as it transitions to a new innovative interprofessional health science (IHS) campus for health professions students.
Judith Lucas, EdD, APN, is the associate dean for undergraduate programs and associate professor in the College of Nursing as well as adjunct associate professor for the new Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University. Lucas has more than 30 years of experience in nursing education. As associate dean she has oversight of all undergraduate nursing programs and partnerships which allow students opportunities to develop their nursing roles by participating in precepted clinical experiences.
Kathleen Neville, PhD, RN, is the associate dean for graduate studies and research. She joins Seton Hall following 28 years as a professor and offsite program administrator for the RN-BSN and graduate programs at Kean University as well as adjunct professor in the School of Medicine at Seton Hall University.
Neville began her career in pediatric nursing caring for children with life threatening illnesses. Her experience led her to research focused on addressing psychosocial issues in adolescents with cancer. Neville’s new role allows her to follow her passion for educating undergraduate and graduate students as well as practicing clinicians in research and evidence-based practice.
Both women joined Seton Hall in January 2018 and are enthusiastic about furthering their academic roles in interprofessional education and expansion of collaborative educational experiences for students and faculty in the College of Nursing, School of Health and Medical Sciences, and Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University.
