FAU Nursing Advisory Board Welcomes Danny Ducello
Oct 7, 2021
Florida Atlantic University’s Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing welcomes Danny Ducello, assistant chief nursing officer at JFK Medical Center, to its advisory board.
“With more than 26 years of experience in nursing leadership, primarily in South Florida, we are excited that Danny is joining our College advisory board. His deep understanding of business administration related to the nursing profession brings a valuable perspective to the board,” said Safiya George, Ph.D., dean, Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing.
Formed in 2012, the advisory board supports the College by leading advocacy and fundraising efforts. This past year, the board supported nursing students at a critical time by expanding its fundraising efforts for the College’s White Coat Ceremony, raising more than $100,000 so each student could receive a white coat scholarship and to provide additional support to nursing students.
“My personal legacy statement is ‘to provide environments where kindness, compassion, quality, and healing are the pillars lifting up the human experience,’ and I can think of no better way to do so than to support the dynamic Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing as a member of the advisory board. Nursing changed my life dramatically, and I hope to help others have a similar experience,” said Ducello.
Ducello holds a Master of Science in Nursing from Walden University and is pursuing a Doctor of Business Administration degree with a concentration in health care management, also from Walden University. In his current role as assistant CNO, he is responsible for the wound care clinic and many inpatient units at JFK Medical Center. Prior to his career in healthcare, he worked in television production in Los Angeles. He was inspired to become a nurse after an incident that required him to have brain surgery and a year-long rehabilitation.
