She will oversee the recruitment, retention, and advancement of doctoral students; develop and implement new initiatives to advance their research capacity; and facilitate interprofessional interactions and learning.

“Dr. Nahm brings a distinguished record of service to the School and to the University of Maryland, Baltimore and is highly regarded as a researcher, teacher, and mentor,” said Jane Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN, the Bill and Joanne Conway Dean of the University of Maryland School of Nursing. “The School has a rich legacy of developing nurse researchers, and our doctoral program was one of very few nursing PhD programs when it launched in 1970.

I am confident that given Dr. Nahm’s deep commitment to doctoral education and to nursing research and scholarship that she will ably guide the future development of our program.”
