Christine Colella, MSN, CNP, CS, RN

Christine Colella Christine Colella holds several positions within the UC College of Nursing, where she has worked since 1995. Christine has earned several nursing awards, remains an active presenter, and is an accomplished author in multiple journals. She believes that the distance learning programs can help so many more nurses earn their MSN. “In the transition from an RN to an Advance Practice Nurse, it’s no longer about just learning facts, but building on them to make decisions; it is truly a change in their way of thinking.”
