Nancy Langston Stepping Down as Dean of the Nursing School at Virginia Commonwealth University

langston-nancyNancy F. Langston, dean of the School of Nursing at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, has announced that she will step down from her post at the end of the academic year. She has served as dean of the nursing school for the past 22 years. During her tenure, enrollment at the school increased from 444 to nearly 1,000 students.

“When Nancy Langston first arrived as dean of the VCU School of Nursing more than two decades ago, it was a good school that offered superb clinical training to its students,” said Sheldon Retchin, senior vice president for health sciences at VCU and CEO of the VCU Health System. “However, during her 22-year tenure as dean, she has taken it from ‘good’ to ‘great’ by recruiting an outstanding faculty, building its research base, and starting the school’s first Ph.D. program.”

Dean Langston is a graduate of the University of Arkansas. She holds a master’s degree in nursing from Emory University in Atlanta and a doctorate in higher education administration from Georgia State University.
