The Faculty of Health Sciences has welcomed registered nurse and long-time nursing instructor, Peter Kellett, to the position of assistant dean of nursing. Kellett who has been a strong advocate for men in the field of nursing says he is thrilled to step into the new role.
“I have the immense privilege of working with a fantastic team of faculty, staff and students in the NESA BN Programs and the Faculty of Health Sciences at large. Building on our recent national accreditation by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN), I am certain that we will continue our tradition of excellent nursing education, and further solidify our place as a destination nursing program for Alberta and beyond,” says Kellett.
Dr. Chris Hosgood, dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, says Kellett was a natural fit for the role and believes he will be an outstanding addition to the leadership team.
“Peter has been a member of the nursing instructional team for a decade. During that time he has taken on a number of administrative roles, completed his master’s degree and almost finished his PhD,” says Hosgood. “He is a wonderful colleague with a passion for nursing education and a tremendous commitment to supporting our students.”
Kellett has had a focus in researching the impact perceived masculinities have on the rates of depression in men.
