Vincent Salyers

Dean of Nursing

What inspired you to pursue a career in nursing education?

“While I was in high school, I started working in a local hospital as a unit clerk. Engaging with the interprofessional health team, and most closely with nurses, my call to care began. Providing kind, compassionate, and high-quality care, they masterfully balanced the art and science of nursing. I persevered through my first degree in psychology and then entered my master’s entry program in nursing at San Francisco State University. I started working in oncology and absolutely loved the special relationships that were formed with patients, nurses, and the entire team. It was a special journey that ignited my desire to make a difference in nursing.”
