New York University College of Nursing has announced the formation of a new Board of Advisors consisting of 13 national and local leaders in nursing and health care. The establishment of this board was warranted by the elevation of the College of Nursing from a division within NYU to a separate college within the College of Dentistry-a process that was completed in September 2005. The Board of Advisors will meet semi-annually to guide the new college, review its progress, and help inform and shape its future.

The chair of the Board of Advisors is NYU nursing alumna Neville Strumpf, PhD, RN, FAAN, who is the Edith Clemmer Steinbright Professor in Gerontology and director of the Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence at University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Dr. Strumpf formerly served as interim dean of nursing at the University of Pennsylvania.

“The Board sees the College as a key player in health care in New York City and as a critical force for academic nursing, drawing a national and international student body,” says Dr. Strumpf. “We expect the College to have a significant impact well beyond the city as we celebrate 75 years of nursing at NYU.”

“Boards of Advisors are common at the top nursing schools and can be very valuable in providing a broad vision that takes financial, social, and health care perspectives into account. We appreciate the commitment these outstanding board members have made to the NYU College of Nursing and look forward to their wise counsel.” says Dr. Fulmer.
