Dr. Haley began a career in nursing in 1996 as an LPN, and in 2017, she earned her doctoral degree. She focuses her nursing research on the development of empathy and is currently exploring attributes that contribute to the development of empathetic leadership in nursing.
She recently obtained her certification in the field of nursing education as a Certified Nurse Educator (CNE), exemplifying excellence, caring and a positive image of nursing within the field of nursing education.
“I’m humbled to be chosen for this leadership award,” Dr. Haley said. “I aspire to be a leader that serves and empowers others. My team of nursing faculty are the core of my leadership and teach me daily how vital caring, compassion and human dignity are in the lives of each other, our nursing students and our patients.”
