Dean of the Baylor University School of Nursing to Step Down on June 30

Shelley F. Conroy dean of the Louise Herrington School of Nursing at Baylor University in Texas, has decided to step down from her administrative post effective June 30. She has served as dean of the nursing school for eight years. Earlier, Dr. Conroy was dean and a tenured professor at Armstrong State University, Weber State University and John Tyler Community College.

“Serving Baylor students, faculty, staff and stakeholders has been a career highlight. Servant leadership propels organizational success, and I am grateful to have served over the years, contributing to the professional successes the LHSON has achieved,” Dr. Conroy said. “This sabbatical permits me to further advance my research interests in upscaling global nursing through educational partnerships, but more importantly, to assist in caring for and spending quality time with my elderly parents who need the attention and service of their nurse/daughter.”

Conroy holds bachelor’s and master’s degree in maternal-infant nursing with a specialization in nursing education from Virginia Commonwealth University. She earned her doctor of education degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Central Florida with a specialization in nursing education.
