School of Nursing Dean Carolyn Yucha was named to the recently established Nevada System of Higher Education Health Sciences System Council to identify and promote best practices for health science programs.
The council will review partnerships between NSHE health sciences programs and health care providers in Nevada. It also will recommend strategies to strengthen partnerships and to diversify the Nevada economy.
UNLV’s participants also include Mary Guinan, dean of the School of Community Health Sciences, and Karen West, dean of the School of Dental Medicine.
The council will continue to meet and provide leadership to ensure that Nevada has a highly trained health care workforce to meet our current and future needs.
