Dr. Jeannette Andrews, Dean and Professor of the College of Nursing, was selected
by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) to participate in the AACN-Wharton
Executive Leadership Program. This world-class leadership enrichment program, designed
exclusively for top academic leaders in nursing, took place June 17-June 20, 2013
at the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The program
included 20 nursing deans from across the country.
Andrews, who just returned from the program, was excited about the exchange of ideas with top nursing leaders and the expertise from a broad range of instructors from this program. "The program provided models for leading change, entrepreneurship and revenue generation, and strategic agility. I will utilize these as we refine our strategic plan and move the College of Nursing forward in an effort to grow our graduate programs, expand our scholarship and research opportunities, and explore innovations in practice and healthcare delivery."
Andrews indicated she was extremely proud to represent the USC College of Nursing at this meeting. "We have an outstanding faculty, staff, students, and alumni who are engaged and committed to the health of our citizens across the state. We all look forward to continue enhancing our partnerships and move toward our goal of a more highly educated and diverse nursing workforce, including nurse clinicians, educators and scientists. USC nurses are leading the way and are making a difference in our region and beyond."
