Jean Pawl, chair of the Department of Nursing, has completed the Academy for Academic Leadership’s Chair and Academic Administrators Management Program (CAAMP).
CAAMP is a three-day interprofessional, open-enrollment course designed for administrative leaders in health professions education. The program’s coursework includes sessions on legal issues, faculty performance and assessment, strategic planning, conflict management, work-life balance, and building interprofessional education initiatives. Participants also get the chance to strengthen their leadership abilities through personal assessments and professional and peer coaching.
“The information I received from this program was invaluable, and I will use it as the foundation for my professional growth as the new chair of ASU’s nursing department,” said Pawl.
Before joining ASU in 1993, Pawl worked 10 years at the University of Nebraska Medical Center as a registered nurse in oncology. Throughout her career, she has written articles on breast cancer and presented her research on oncology studies in numerous workshops hosted by professional organizations such as the Bone Marrow Transplant Symposium, Georgia Nurses Association, and the Oncology Nursing Society.
Pawl is active in the community and is a member of several organizations including the Oncology Nursing Society and Sigma Theta Tau, the Honor Society of Nursing.
She received her associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees from the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s College of Nursing and her doctoral degree from Georgia State University.
