Carrington College Boise Announces New Dean of Nursing
"As the new Dean of Nursing I am excited to be mentoring faculty members and help them become effective educators," says Dr. James. "One of my priorities is making sure the program goes well and sets our students up for success. I also want all of our faculty members to feel valued and supported as we help our students in achieving their career goals," added Dr. James.
Before joining Carrington College Dr. James served as the Department Chair of Nursing and Health Sciences at Pacific Union College in Angwin, Calif. where she directed and helped manage all the institution's nursing and health science programs. Prior to that she served as the Director of the Registered Nursing Program at Klamath Community College where she helped develop and launch both the new Practical Nursing program and the new Registered Nursing Program.
"I enjoy working in education because, like healthcare, it allows me to help make a difference in the lives of others," says Dr. James. "Now, I not only impact the lives of students and their families, but all the patients and their families that they will care for and educate. I am only one small pebble in a big lake, but the ripple I make continues to extend out in larger and larger rings," added Dr. James.
Dr. James received a Doctor of Nursing Practice in Educational Leadership from American Sentinel University and a Master's in Nursing Administration from University of Phoenix. She has also been inducted into the International Nursing Honor Society (Sigma Theta Tau).
