Christine Wynd

Dear Mount Carmel Alumni,

I want you to know how thrilled I am to have been named president and dean, Mount Carmel College of Nursing. It is an honor, not only to follow in the remarkable footsteps of President and Dean Emeritus, Dr. Ann Schiele, but to be your representative in the Columbus community and, indeed, around the world.

I have already received a very warm welcome from many of you, including the Mount Carmel College of Nursing Board of Trustees, members of the faculty and staff, and students, and it has been wonderful. Over the past few weeks, so many have stopped by to say hello and wish me well. I truly feel part of the MCCN family.


The sound of bagpipes announced a new tradition for Mount Carmel College of Nursing (MCCN) on Thursday, August 14, as our new President and Dean Christine Wynd, PhD, RN, led the colorful Convocation 2014 procession along Broad Street to Holy Family Church, where the ceremony was held.
