A True Professional & Lifelong Learner

The challenge with Dr. Gina Reiners lies in encapsulating her vast experience into a cohesive statement. With:

  • five academic degrees
  • clinical experience as a psychiatric nurse and APRN
  • hospital and business leadership
  • and an applied commitment to transformational leadership,

Reiners defies easy classification — and therein lies the value of her USJ service.

As a professor and lifelong learner, Reiner said, “I believe that each learner — including faculty — has the potential to become a transformational leader who believes through reason and passion that they will inspire our next generation of learners.”

Scholarship and Mentorship

Citing her experience as “giving me the ability to be a catalyst and instrument in assisting each learner,” Reiners brings the totality of nursing into the classroom: pedagogy, community service, and scholarship: “I have embraced a teaching philosophy that includes a shared vision of scholarship sustained through mentorship.”
