Biography

Mrs. Harrison is an Associate Professor at Andrews University.

She is board certified as an Acute Care Nurse Practioner, and has over 20 years of clinical experience in Cardiology. She has taught in community settings and the hospitals; taught RN’s, and precepted NP and PA students. She was privileged to participate in the expansion of an Interventional Cardiology program on Maui, increasing patient access to cardiac intervention there on the island. Recently, her passion drew her to entrepreneurship and business ownership with marked success in decreasing 30-day readmissions in the sub-acute space to 40% below national averages.  Over the years, she has credited her passion for learning and teaching to the patience and commitment of highly skilled and respected nurse and physician mentors.
