Jill Kilanowski

Jill Kilanowski, PhD, RN, APRN, CPNP, FAAN, has been named associate dean for Graduate Nursing Programs, MCCN. A certified nurse practitioner, nurse scientist and educator, she will oversee both the master’s and doctoral programs. You can read more about her vision for graduate education at MCCN in the upcoming fall 2015 issue of the Lamp.

Dr. Kilanowski’s nearly two decades in nursing education is a tremendous boon for Mount Carmel, as is her professional stature as past president, National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and her research on the health of children and families of migrant farm workers. She earned her PhD from The Ohio State University and both a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Columbia University in New York.
