Profile

Mary Wierenga, PhD, RN

Professor Emerita

Prior to my retirement in 2005, I conducted research on Lifestyle modification to promote health and prevent disease and its complications. I also had been Associate Dean of the Graduate School, Director of the Doctoral Program, and Associate Dean for Research. I use the knowledge I gained from these positions to help launch the online doctoral program at the CON in 2003 and continue to teach one doctoral research course online.
