Berry Announces Nursing Faculty

Berry College officials recently hired three professors for the new Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program.

Professors Pamela Bowen Dunagan, Sara Clarkson Majors and Tanya Dooley Naguszewski are excited about welcoming Berry's newest nursing students beginning in January 2014.

The nursing program at Berry inspires students to achieve their full potential through highly interactive small group class activities, hands-on nursing practice in a state-of-the art clinical practice lab using Human Patient Simulators, a senior internship and much more. Students who gain admission to Berry and have taken the prerequisite courses can apply now to an 18-month fast-track option which will begin in January with coursework completion and graduation projected for May 2015.

Dunagan is an assistant professor in the Division of Nursing at Berry. She received her bachelor's degree in nursing from Jacksonville State University, a master's degree in nursing from the University of West Georgia, and a doctorate in nursing from Mercer University where she was the recipient of the Outstanding Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Award. This summer she is studying Development of Instrumentation at the University of North Carolina.

Dunagan has practiced nursing since 1983 and has been employed with Redmond Regional Medical Center, Amedysis Home Health Care, and the Floyd County Health Department. Primarily her work has been in community health.

She has been a nurse educator since 2008 and has been instrumental in the development and implementation of two schools of nursing. Her teaching interests are in the areas of community health, cultural immersion, nursing research, physical assessment, pharmacology, school health, and foundational concepts of nursing. She led two groups of nursing students in a cultural immersion in the country of Bulgaria where students cared for children with severe developmental delays. Dr. Dunagan is developing another cultural immersion experience for students with a National Children's Hospital in Costa Rica.

Dunagan is a member of Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honor Society, Phi Kappa Phi, the Southern Nursing Research Society, and Georgia Association for Nursing Educators. Her current interest in research is in the development and use of tools measuring nursing education outcomes.

Majors comes to Berry from the University of South Alabama in the Department of Maternal Child Nursing. As Associate Professor in the Maternal Child Nursing Department, she was responsible for the Primary Care Nurse Pediatric Practitioners Masters' track and the Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioners Doctorate track, teaching at the master and doctoral levels, course development, and mentoring students and faculty.

Since 2007, she has worked with foster children in custody of the Department of Human Resources. Majors has also volunteered as a nurse practitioner at The Baldwin Clinic/Le Clinica de Baldwin in Foley, Alabama and many summer and rural clinics. She served on the Quality Assurance board for Alabama Department of Human Resources in Mobile, and in Cherokee and DeKalb Counties.

Majors earned a doctorate of nursing practice, a nurse practitioner degree and a master's degree in nursing from the University of South Alabama and a master's degree of public health and a bachelor's in nursing from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Her professional experience includes work at the Anesthesia Service of Mobile, Anesthesia Services of Birmingham, Alabama Neonatology Associates and St. Vincent's Hospital Neonatal ICU. Majors is also a member of the Association of Faculty for the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and board member for the Association of Faculty for the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners.

Naguszewski received her bachelor and master degrees in nursing from the University of West Georgia. She is currently pursuing a doctorate from Mercer University School of Nursing. She has been an instructor of nursing since 2008 and has 20 years of nursing experience including Redmond Regional Medical Center and Amedysis Home Health. Resent teaching courses include: Nursing Fundamentals, Pharmacology, Assessment, Vulnerable Populations, Simulation, along with Adult Health, Mental Health, Pediatric, and Obstetric clinical courses, and study abroad.

Research endeavors include a collaborative project focused on faculty use of web 2.0 tools and publication in a peer reviewed journal. Her clinical specialty area is adult health nursing and she is licensed in Georgia and Alabama.

Naguszewski is a member of Georgia Association of Nurse Educators, National League of Nurses, Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, and Americas Medical Association of Alliance.
