Heather Mangino ’06, MSN, RN, joined the School of Interdisciplinary Health and Science as an instructor in the department of Nursing during the summer of 2018. An alumna of USJ’s Accelerated Second Degree Program, Professor Mangino later received her master’s degree in Nursing from the University of Hartford. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Northeastern University. As a registered nurse with a clinical background in organ transplantation and end-stage organ disease, Professor Mangino discovered a love of nursing education early in her career, while working with students on the transplant floor. She has taught at the vocational, undergraduate, and graduate levels, and her research interests include curriculum development, the creation of cohesive connections between the classroom and clinical settings, and best practices for NCLEX preparation. A first-generation college student and lifelong learner, Professor Mangino is currently a doctoral student in the Nursing Education Program at Southern Connecticut State University.
