Hannah Murphy Buc

UMSON’s entry BSN program is ranked No. 10 in the nation by "U.S. News & World Report" and is the top-ranked BSN program in Maryland.

The University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) has appointed Hannah Murphy Buc, MSN, RN, CNE, clinical instructor, as director of its entry Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. She succeeds Jana Goodwin, PhD, RN, assistant professor, who has been appointed chair of the UMSON program at the Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, Maryland.

As program director, Murphy Buc will work with faculty, staff, students, and community and clinical partners to continue developing and implementing a revised BSN curriculum based on the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s new Essentials, which provides a framework for incorporating competency-based education for practice-ready graduates. UMSON is a national leader in implementing the revised curriculum, which begins this fall. Murphy Buc will also identify priorities and guide the program’s faculty development, student inclusion and success, and partnerships with community stakeholders to continue creating meaningful and engaging opportunities for students that also contribute to improving health care quality, equity, and outcomes for individuals, families, and communities. 

“Professor Murphy Buc brings great expertise in both clinical and classroom pedagogies, as well as a deep commitment to our School values of diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said Maeve Howett, PhD, APRN, CPNP-PC, CNE, professor and associate dean for the baccalaureate program. “Her work in restorative and social justice brings an important approach to our admissions, progression, curriculum, and student outcomes. As we launch our new curriculum, she has some wonderful ideas about improving the student experience and capitalizing on our momentum to lead nursing education.”
