Nancy Sullivan, DNP, RN
Nancy Sullivan received her BSN in 1975, her MS in 1992, and her DNP in 2013 from the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. Throughout her career, Dr. Sullivan has had a great variety of nursing experiences that included ED/trauma/critical care of both adult and pediatric patients, a stint in nursing management, and 11 years in a nurse educator role working with new graduate nurses. Since 2005, she has held adjunct faculty positions at JHSON including clinical instructor, clinical course coordinator, and course coordinator for the critical care nursing elective as well as guest lecturer. Her doctoral work focused on resuscitation; improving the nursing response in the first few minutes of a cardiac arrest. In her current role as director of Clinical Simulation, she hopes to evaluate how simulation can best meet the educational objectives of the students—what types of simulation scenarios are best for each class.
