At South University, our nursing students and faculty understand the importance of lifelong learning, especially amidst the ongoing transformation of our healthcare systems, our aging US population, and the limited access to care in many communities.
In the College of Nursing and Public Health, our academic offerings can prepare you with a strong foundation and the fundamental knowledge and skills you’ll need to continue developing and evolving throughout your career. We encourage our students and faculty to be active in furthering the nursing community, and we support nursing organizations such as the Florida Nurse Practitioner Network (FNPN) that help nurses to learn from each other and encourage discussions about new nursing methods and techniques.
South University at the 2017 FNPN Conference
Through numerous workshops, training courses, and presentations, this year’s FNPN conference explores a variety of caregiving best practices as well as the many ways that the nursing community is transforming the healthcare field. Held August 10-12, 2017 at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel in Lake Buena Vista, FL, the conference will include keynote speeches on the future of nurse practitioners in healthcare as well as strategies for solving complex healthcare problems. Recognizing the importance of these discussions, South University will be attending the conference, with team members available to chat with attendees and discuss how our graduate programs can prepare you for this ever-evolving profession.
Among the team representing South University will be Dr. William Warrington, PhD, ARNP, FNP-C, CCRP, an accomplished nurse practitioner and educator, with over 25 years of nursing experience. Warrington is a South University Assistant Dean and
Associate Professor for Graduate Nursing at the South University Orlando Learning Site. At our Orlando Learning Site, students can attend classes and meet with advisors and faculty in-person once a week, while completing their remaining coursework online or in clinical settings.
Warrington holds an MSN from Georgetown University as well as a PhD in Nursing Science / Physiology from the University of Florida. His hospital nursing experience includes time in the ICU as well as time in cardiac catheterization laboratories. Warrington has also held the title of Nurse Scientist, working for 5 years with the Center for Nursing Research, where he served as co-investigator in numerous studies and co-authored multiple peer-reviewed articles, including one published in the Journal of the Association for Vascular Access.
In addition to guiding and mentoring South University students, Warrington continues to practice at a family medicine clinic in Orlando and volunteers his time as a Nurse Practitioner for Shepherd's Hope Inc, providing free care to low-income families in need.
