Mary Schuler New Statewide AHEC Nursing Liaison

Dr. Mary Schuler, RN, MSN, EdD, CNE, has assumed the position of Statewide Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Nursing Liaison at the School of Nursing. Dr. Schuler comes to the SON from Norwalk Community College in Connecticut, where she was director of nursing and allied health. With leadership management and curriculum development in her background, Dr. Schuler’s new focus is the future of nursing within the health care system of North Carolina.

Dr. Schuler says she is drawn to AHEC because she believes in the AHEC mission and vision, in serving underserved populations, and in working to make the diversity of health care workers reflect the population of the communities they serve. “These are things I hold dear,” Dr. Schuler says. “I consider this position an opportunity to look in a visionary manner at nursing in the state.” She also assumes a faculty role as a SON assistant clinical professor.
