Faculty

Our professors aren’t just expert teachers. They are experts at what they teach. Prepare yourself for a tremendous learning experience. The UC faculty lives and works in the field, meaning you are exposed to the latest theories and techniques by the people who are actually implementing the practices. This is insight that many professors just cannot provide. And it means that you will get a much more relevant educational experience.

Our faculty is proud to help shape the next generation of nursing leaders. Take a moment and read about your new professors.
