Ann Michelle Hartman, DNP, RN, NP

Dr. Ann "Michelle" Hartman came to DUSON from Jefferson College of Health Sciences in Roanoke, Virginia. She earned her BSN and MSN at Virginia Commonwealth University. She worked as a pediatric nurse practitioner at level 2 NICU in Georgia and as a Clinical Nurse Specialist at a multidisciplinary children’s hospital in Virginia. She then transitioned to a faculty role while completing her DNP at Case Western University. As an Assistant Professor at Jefferson College of Health Sciences, she taught a variety of classroom courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs including Health Assessment, Pathophysiology, and Pediatrics. She supervised students in pediatric and community clinical settings. She was also active in Sigma Theta Tau International, serving as Counselor for her local (Tau Phi) chapter.

Inspired by the opportunity to practice in Haiti during her graduate education, Dr. Hartman facilitated opportunities for students to serve the health care needs of the medically underserved both in the Roanoke Valley and in Honduras. At Jefferson, she served as chair of the Developing Cultural Competence in Nursing Advisory Board and was a member of the newly formed International Review Committee. She had a leadership role in the development of a Community Health Promoter Program in a subset of rural mountain villages in Honduras.

Dr. Hartman’s research has focused on the effects of cultural immersion experiences on baccalaureate healthcare students.
