Mequon-based Concordia University Wisconsin has named Dr. Sharon Chappy the dean of its School of Nursing.
Chappy will begin leading the School of Nursing on Aug. 1. She replaces Dr. Carol Ott, who became interim dean of the School of Nursing earlier this year.
Chappy has been an academic educator since 1992, most recently as a graduate program director and assistant dean at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh School of Nursing. She is also the research editor at AORN Journal, and specializes in perioperative nursing.
She will lead all Concordia graduate, undergraduate and certificate nursing programs, and work to deliver high quality nursing education to students in the most efficient and convenient manner.
“I was attracted to Concordia because of its very strong nursing program and the excellent reputation of the university, the School of Nursing and its graduates,” she said. “During my career, I have established strong collegial relationships with nurses, academics, and health care agency leaders across the state and beyond. I look forward to building on those relationships as Dean of the School of Nursing, as well as developing new partnerships in the greater Milwaukee area. I look forward to continuing the successes that the school has in place and building upon the excellence already established here.”
