The College of Nursing would like to extend a warm welcome to our new dean, Linda Weglicki, PhD, RN, MSN. Weglicki begins June 1 and will be working closely with Gail Stuart, PhD, RN, FAAN, for the remainder of the month to get better acquainted with the college and university’s culture and practices. A talented educator, researcher and thought leader, Weglicki is coming to MUSC from Florida Atlantic University where she served as the associate dean for nursing research and scholarship and PhD studies of the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing in Boca Raton, FL. 

Weglicki’s arrival to MUSC coincides with the 8th Annual Janelle Othersen Visiting Professorship Lecture, therefore she is an obvious choice to give this year’s address. Her presentation, “Promoting areas of distinction: Navigating challenges and opportunities collaboratively,” will be presented on Wednesday, July 18 at 4:00 p.m. in the MUSC Drug Discovery Auditorium (70 President St.), followed by a reception. All students, faculty, staff, regional alumni, donors and the South Carolina nursing community are invited to attend. 

We are all looking forward to seeing how Weglicki’s leadership and vision will guide the future of nurse education at MUSC.
