Nursing dean candidates to visit campus

The final candidates interested in becoming the new dean for NAU’s School of Nursing will be on campus during the next few weeks to interview, tour facilities and meet faculty, staff and students.

“Educating more nurses to meet the needs of the growing workforce is a priority for NAU, and we are looking for a strong leader to guide us into the future,” said Leslie Schulz, executive dean of the College of Health and Human Services. “Our nursing dean candidates all have a rich history of experience and collaboration.”
