GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Anna M. McDaniel has been named dean of the University of Florida College of Nursing, effective this summer.
McDaniel serves as the associate dean for research at the Indiana University School of Nursing where she has been a faculty member since 1992. A Chancellor’s Professor in both the schools of Informatics and Nursing, McDaniel also directs the graduate nursing informatics certificate program.
“I am confident that Dr. McDaniel is poised to seize the remarkable opportunities that lie ahead for the College of Nursing especially with the crucial role that nursing plays in meeting health care needs of our state and country,” said Dr. David S. Guzick, senior vice president for health affairs and president of the UF&Shands Health System. “Her strong background as a successful administrator, prolific researcher and scholar, and committed educator will benefit not only the College of Nursing’s faculty and students but the UF health system as a whole. Dr. McDaniel has a track record of strong interdisciplinary work and a very collaborative working style, which is exactly where the future lies for the Academic Health Center at the University of Florida.”Tweet
