Creighton University’s College of Nursing will welcome home one of its own as dean this summer. Catherine Todero, Ph.D., BSN’72, was named in January as the college’s next dean, taking the reins on June 1.
“I am thrilled to be returning to Creighton
University as dean of the College of Nursing,” Todero said. “Creighton
launched me as a professional nurse and the opportunity to serve as the
dean in my career is especially gratifying.”
Todero earned a master’s degree in nursing from the
University of Nebraska Medical Center in 1974, followed by a Ph.D. in
administration, curriculum and instruction from the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln in 1986. She also served in the U.S. Army Reserve Nurse
Corps with the 82nd Field Hospital from 1979 to 1983, attaining the
rank of captain.
Most recently, Todero served as associate dean and
director of the School of Nursing at Azusa Pacific University in San
Diego, a position she has held since 2012. She’s also been an associate
dean and interim dean at the UNMC College of Nursing and director of the
School of Nursing at San Diego State University.
And this is not Todero’s first administrative
posting at her alma mater. From 1979 to 1980, she was the director of
Creighton’s R.N.-BSN curriculum.
“Creighton is pleased to welcome Dr. Catherine
Todero as the next dean of the College of Nursing,” said University
Provost Edward R. O’Connor, Ph.D. “Dr. Todero has been a compassionate,
innovative leader since her undergraduate days at Creighton. Her
experience in nursing practice, academia and the military have shown her
to be a consummate professional and a true practitioner of the
Creighton mission, focused on service to others.”
