Search committee formed to identify next Hopkins Nursing dean
Johns Hopkins University has announced plans to launch a global search for the next dean of its School of Nursing. Patricia Davidson, a global leader in cardiac health and the care of vulnerable populations, will leave the university in April to become vice-chancellor of the University of Wollongong in her native Australia.
Under the leadership of Davidson, who has served as dean since 2013, the School of Nursing maintained its No. 1 standing as the school transitioned to an exclusive focus on graduate-level instruction and introduced a range of new programs with notable collaborations across the university, such as the Doctor of Nursing Practice/Masters of Business, Doctor of Nursing Practice/Masters of Public Health, Doctor of Nursing Practice/Nurse Anesthesiology, and Doctor of Nursing Practice/Doctor of Philosophy.
Provost Sunil Kumar will chair the committee that will help identify Davidson's successor. The executive search firm Isaacson, Miller will work closely with the university committee to develop a candidate pool and facilitate the process. Members of the Johns Hopkins community are encouraged to share thoughts and/or confidential nominations with the search firm.
