Teresa S. White is an adjunct instructor for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) programs. She received her Doctorate in Nursing Practice from Walden University in 2014, focusing her dissertation on an original research study looking at improving social outcomes for stroke survivors. Dr. White had the opportunity to present this research at the International Stroke Conference in 2015.

Dr. White has 14 years of experience in the acute care setting, focusing on cardiology and stroke care as well as professional development. Her educational focus has been undergraduate Leadership & Management in Nursing, Transcultural Nursing, and Healthcare Policy in Nursing, as well as graduate level Moral/Ethical Decision Making in Nursing and Evidence-Based Practice.

On a personal note, Dr. White is a very proud mother of her son and daughter. When she is not teaching, she can be found at the sideline of every game cheering them on. Dr. White enjoys reading novels and traveling to new places whenever she has the time.
