We are pleased to welcome Dr. Todd F. Ambrosia, DNP, MSN, MBA, FNP-BC, FNAP, as president of the Mount Carmel College of Nursing. Dr. Ambrosia, who joins MCCN May 7, will work collaboratively with faculty, staff and students to continue growing and expanding the school’s legacy of excellence in nursing education.
Dr. Ambrosia is a recognized nurse leader bringing nearly 25 years of experience. His years of leadership include advancing interdisciplinary programs in research, education and practice, launching new academic programs, increasing enrollment and student retention and growing revenue.
He comes to us from the Mount Sinai Health System in New York City, where he served as vice president of Nursing Academic Affairs and dean of the Mount Sinai Phillips School of Nursing since August 2015. Previously, he was associate dean for Graduate Programs and associate professor at the University of Miami School of Nursing and a program director and assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Nursing.
Dr. Ambrosia received his Doctor of Nursing Practice from the University of Miami and his Master of Science in Nursing from Vanderbilt University. He is a distinguished fellow of the Academy of Nursing of the National Academies of Practice and is active in several other professional organizations, including the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, American Assembly of Men in Nursing, and the Advanced Practice Network of the International Council of Nurses.
A board-certified family nurse practitioner, Dr. Ambrosia is active clinically in adolescent and young adult primary care and has established research and academic collaborations with universities in Italy, Taiwan, Colombia, Belgium, India, and Malaysia. As a staunch advocate for global health promotion, he regularly provides volunteer clinical services to underserved adolescents and young adults in high-need areas across the country and around the world.
We’d like to thank Dr. Allan Hoffman, Ed.D, CHES, who has been leading the College during the interim and will continue doing so until Dr. Ambrosia’s arrival in May. During Dr. Hoffman’s interim leadership, MCCN has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a 2023 Best Online Program and was awarded more than $1.4 million in January 2023 for graduate student scholarships. As a result of his leadership and community outreach efforts, several strategic partnerships and alliances have been established that have positively helped program expansion and significantly impacted enrollment growth.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Ambrosia and wishing him success in his new role, as well as thanking Dr. Hoffman for his continued support.
