Graduate Nursing Faculty

The Clarke University graduate nursing faculty are dedicated, experienced, and possess the academic credentials to prepare family nurse practitioners as professional leaders. As nurse practitioners are seasoned health care professionals who strive for quality communication and relationship building in their practice to promote wellness for their patients. As teachers they offer challenging and stimulating instruction that promotes learning and actively engages students in critical thinking, thoughtful reflection, and competent clinical practice. Adept in both the classroom and the clinical setting, faculty offer one-to-one attention that assists students in acquiring knowledge that enables them to engage in effective evidenced-based practice as professional healthcare providers.
