School of Nursing Faculty

We are very pleased that Dr. Barbara Johnson has taken on the challenge of becoming our founding Dean of the Nursing School. Barbara is no stranger to Belhaven as she has been serving on our faculty as Director of the Health Administration Program. As Dean, Dr. Johnson will play a vital role in the completion of our nursing degree application, curriculum development, and the identification of additional faculty members.
Additional faculty are currently being interviewed and will be added to this page as they are named.
