This fall Illinois State University welcomed President Timothy J. Flanagan to campus. His wife, Nancy Flanagan, holds a Ph.D. in nursing and has an accomplished career as a nurse leader, author, clinician, and academic.

Nancy Flanagan was invited to be a guest speaker for a colloquium event held September 27 at the Mennonite College of Nursing (MCN). She presented “Establishing a Program of Research, or … What Do I Do Now That the Dissertation Is Defended?” to a packed classroom of graduate students and faculty in Schroeder Hall.
