Biography

Mrs. Schwartz joined Arkansas State University as an Assistant Professor of Nursing in Spring 2017.  This transition follows five years of adjunct faculty work at Arkansas State and Union University. Her primary experience has been in pediatric nursing at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. Through various professional roles ranging from a bed side RN to most recently a nursing informatics specialist she has developed a deep desire to build quality graduate nurses.  Her hope is to instill in the nurses graduating from Arkansas State University an appreciation for evidence based practice and to always work towards improving safety and outcomes.  Mrs. Schwartz is married with two young children who keep her active.
