Notable Women in Education: Carol Sabel

Professor/Department Chair / Milwaukee School of Engineering

The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the need for passionate and skilled nurses to keep our communities healthy and safe. According to colleagues, Dr. Carol Sabel, professor and chairperson in the School of Nursing at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), is leading a team of faculty who assist in the development of nurses who will meet the school’s nursing vision.

The MSOE School of Nursing sets the standard for excellence in preparing nurses who will impact society as expert practitioners, leaders, and scholars, Sabel said.

Sabel was named chair of the MSOE School of Nursing in 2016. Under her leadership, MSOE created two new certificate programs and the new MSN track. She was also instrumental in the development of the partnership with Rogers Behavioral Health to offer a Psychiatric Mental Health NP program.

Since Sabel stepped into a leadership role at MSOE, the School of Nursing saw a steady increase in nursing enrollment, reaching record-high numbers with more than 200 students each year.

She was a driving force behind the creation of new certificate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, including the Master of Science in Nursing Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner track in partnership with Rogers Behavioral Health.
