Washington Adventist University (WAU) has appointed Emily Mize, RN, Ph.D., to serve as chair of the department of nursing. The Edyth T. James Department of Nursing is part of the University’s School of Health Professions, Science and Wellness.
“The department is at a point of transitioning from a college program to a university program. I am excited about this opportunity to give back to the Seventh-day Adventist Church and to nursing education,” Mize said. “I am passionate about teaching and mentoring both students and faculty.”
Increased enrollment, contributions from alumni and friends, and prudent budgetary choices, have contributed to another year of improved financial performance at Washington Adventist University. The Consolidated Financial Index (CFI) score, a higher education financial health measurement, has greatly improved over the last several years with current score beating the average of all private colleges in Maryland.
