Her clinical areas of expertise include medical-surgical and cardiac nursing. Scholarship activities include health behavior change, improving medication adherence and nursing education.
A SIUE alumna, Andrews earned her bachelor’s of science in nursing and master’s of science in nursing education from SIUE. She earned her PhD from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
The School of Nursing’s programs are committed to creating excellence in nursing leadership through innovative teaching, evidence-based practice, quality research, patient advocacy and community service. Enrolling more than 1,700 students in its baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral programs, the School develops leaders in pursuit of shaping the nursing profession and impacting the health care environment. SIUE’s undergraduate nursing programs on the Edwardsville campus help to solve the region’s shortage of baccalaureate-prepared nurses and enhance the quality of nursing practice within all patient service venues. The School’s graduate programs prepare nurses for advanced roles in clinical practice, administration and education.
