Congratulations to Anne Derouin, DNP, RN, CPNP, FAANP, associate professor; who has been named director of the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program.
“I’m deeply honored to serve the MSN Program at Duke, having been a proud graduate of our pediatric primary care program and a member of the team that successfully moved our traditional graduate program to a distance-based learning platform,” says Derouin. “The MSN program has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years thanks to the grace and skill of former program directors, so I’m particularly humbled to assume the role and share in the rich tradition of the DUSON graduate program.”
Derouin adds that she hopes to foster continued excellence throughout the School’s diverse academic programs and facilitate ongoing efforts of innovation and collaboration among the talented faculty members, clinical preceptors and students.
As an associate professor, Derouin has taught a variety of didactic and clinical courses in the ABSN, MSN and DNP programs. She also holds clinical associate appointments at Duke Community and Family Medicine and at Duke Global Health Institute.
In recent years, she has provided primary care services for adolescents through the North Carolina School of Science and Math’s school-based health center, the Wellness Center at Southern High School and the Teen Clinic at Holton Community Resource Center in Durham, which are all affiliated with Duke’s Department of Community and Family Medicine.
Outside of Duke, she also serves as an adolescent clinical expert for the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. She is an Advocacy Fellow for the National Assembly of School-based Health Centers and has served as the executive vice-president for the North Carolina School Community Health Alliance.
She received her BSN from the University of Michigan and earned her MSN and DNP from DUSON. She was a member of the School’s inaugural DNP cohort. Her research interests include school-based, school-linked and community-based health care, and her areas of expertise include global and community health, health disparities and pediatric nursing.
