Dr. Donna Linette is board certified in Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, Nursing Administration, and Holistic Nursing. After several years in an adjunct position, I was fortunate to join FAU on a full-time basis in 2018. My experience includes 35+ years in the hospital setting, the majority of those years working in nursing leadership positions in a variety of mental health settings. Passions include leadership in nursing, and advocating in mental health.
