Susan Draine, EdD, MSN, MBA, RN, Professor/Online Faculty, Graduate Nursing

My clinical nursing and teaching experiences span medical-surgical, newborn nursery, open heart, flight nursing, and the intensive care areas, and I maintained CCRN certification for 31 years.  I enjoyed 30 years of service in the USAF Reserves, retiring as Colonel, all while teaching full time.  I have loved various positions of leadership in the military and academic settings.  My husband and I have three adult children and seven grandchildren.  I love reading and writing, and entertaining family and friends.  Most importantly, I love Him supremely!  Favorite hymn, It is Well;  favorite scripture, Philippians 4:4-9.
