Sue Ann Mahoney, Ph.D., RN

Assistant Professor of BSN Nursing


As a Nursing Educator I have a strong passion for both nursing and teaching. I will do my best to facilitate motivation and confidence among students. I believe strongly in Vincent Tinto's theory that students are motivated by self-efficacy, sense of belonging, and perceived value. I believe it is my duty to help nursing students succeed and will give 100% in making sure they are retained and successful.
