Adey Nyamathi, PhD, ANP, FAAN

Founding Dean and Distinguished Professor

My passion is to lead the new Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing into transformative change which will include significantly expanding the number of exemplary faculty engaged in state of the art pedagogy, cutting-edge research, and innovatively-delivered clinical practice. As we stand in the crossroads of an expanding nursing shortage, we will continue to expand societally-relevant programs and attract and retain a culturally-competent and diverse student body whose area of focus will be the community-based approaches to promoting, improving and sustaining health and wellness of our populations, locally, nationally, and globally.

Assistant Dean

The School of Nursing is more than an academic unit where students are learning, it’s a community where we are building leaders.  As Assistant Dean, it is my passion to support and cultivate a leadership culture in which our students, staff, and faculty are continuously developing and growing to be the servant leaders of today and tomorrow.

Director, Pre-Licensure Programs

In order to prepare the next generation of nurses that care for the most vulnerable in our communities means that as a school of nursing we must be innovative in our teaching methods. To do this, we will work collaboratively to teach our students the value of developing habits of inquiry, providing evidence-based care, working in interdisciplinary teams, and upholding the values of the nursing profession. I am passionate about excellence at the point of care, whether in the home, community, or hospital setting, and I seek to empower all nurses to become their best through lifelong learning.
