Interim Associate Dean of Nursing
Dr. Kathy McCauley, associate professor of cardiovascular nursing, has been appointed interim associate dean and director of undergraduate studies at the School of Nursing effective July 1. She previously served in this role from January 1998 through June 1999. She will continue a clinical appointment at HUP, continue her scholarship in transitional care and provide leadership for courses.
Dr. McCauley replaces Dr. Linda Brown who served as associate dean for the past two years and has resigned from that position but will continue as a member of the standing faculty in a reduced role due to a partial disability. Dr. Brown will assume the leadership supporting the research agenda of those faculty related to women's health.
Dr. Brown "has enhanced community-based clinical opportunities for students, mentored junior faculty, and promoted the presence of men in nursing," said Dr. Neville Strumpf, interim dean. Dr. Brown "played a significant role in shepherding to completion the Brunner Instructional Technology Center. Through the Center for Nursing Research, Dr. Brown has worked to make undergraduate research a model at Penn."
