Lebanon Valley College announced Tuesday that Colleen Marshall will chair the college’s new nursing program, which welcomes its first class this fall.
Marshall is director of graduate programs, The Stabler Department of Nursing, at York College of Pennsylvania.
Previously, she taught at several other colleges and universities. Throughout her academic career, she has continued working in clinical practice, most recently with UPMC Children’s Express Care, Children’s Hospital Pittsburgh in its Hummelstown practice.
Monica Cowart, Lebanon Valley’s provost and vice president of academic affairs, who led the nursing program’s development, said in a release, “We are excited Dr. Marshall is joining us at LVC. Her disciplinary expertise in curricular innovation, her years of experience in the field, and her commitment to student success uniquely position her to not only effectively lead our nursing program, but to mentor our students so that they graduate prepared to address the specific workforce needs of our region.”
Marshall added: “I am honored and excited to lead Lebanon Valley College’s new nursing program from the ground up and beyond. I look forward to creating a suite of nursing programs, including accelerated options, so we can graduate nurses at all levels to help meet the region’s and country’s nursing shortage, and to make an impact throughout their communities.” LVC broke ground on its new Nursing & Interdisciplinary Health Education Facility last week; the building is expected to open in the summer of 2023.
