It is my pleasure and honor to serve as the Associate Dean of Academic Programs at the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing.  We are committed to living a philosophy of caring, and we believe that nursing contributes to society by "nurturing the wholeness of person and environment through caring." This means that students and faculty are dedicated to humanizing healthcare and the development of knowledge related to caring in nursing and to teaching from a caring-based philosophy. As a student, you have the opportunity to experience firsthand our excellent educational programs, accomplished faculty, dedicated alumni and talented students.  We value your unique gifts to our caring circle and we are privileged to guide you through your educational journey.

The Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing has a national and international reputation as a leader in nursing education from a caring-based philosophy. Our faculty members are recognized as leaders in story theory development, holistic approaches to patient care, addressing healthcare disparities through culturally tailored caring approaches, being responsive to the diverse needs of our aging population, and “engaging in systematic inquiry as a foundation for nursing practice, healthcare delivery, and the evolution of nursing as a caring science.

Located on three campuses, we have the largest graduate nursing enrollment of any university in Florida and one of the most ethnically diverse student bodies. We offer flexible delivery of our educational programs with both online and interactive classroom course offerings.  As an added bonus, we are located near the beautiful beaches of South Florida.
