Bio

Dr. Fowler is an Associate Professor of Clinical Nursing at LSU Health New Orleans School of Nursing where she serves as the Program Director for Nurse Practitioner academic and post-graduate programs. She has more than 20 years of nursing experience and over 14 years in academic nursing education. Her clinical expertise is focused on acute and critically ill adults within hospital settings and is recognized internationally as an Institute for Healthcare Improvement Fellow for leadership in quality improvement, she is nationally recognized in the American Association of Critical-care Nurses' 2017 Circle of Excellence, and locally as a Governor appointed member of the Louisiana COVID-19 Health Equity Taskforce. Dr. Fowler is especially dedicated to a life of service to the profession and community at large. She is currently serving nationally as a Board member for the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties where she is or has been the Board Lead for several national committees or workgroups; As an active member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners’ practice committee where she had peer reviewed and published practice briefs; and contributed to the development of a national DNP student poster recognition program; and As an engaged member of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Diversity Leadership Institute Fellow with the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership group.

As a leader in nursing within Louisiana, Dr. Fowler is the incoming Vice President of the Louisiana Nurse Practitioner Foundation, and newly appointed Chair of the Preceptor Committee for the Louisiana Association of Nurse Practitioners Board of Directors. As a community leader, Dr. Fowler serves as the Director for Health and Healing at the Beacon Light Baptist Church of Hammond where over the last several years she has led several health fairs and educational programming in collaboration with church members and local public health organizations.  

"As a leader in nursing, I strategically engage in work 1) to assure health equity among vulnerable, acutely and critically ill persons, especially persons of underrepresented ethnic groups and/or older adults; and 2) to assure the delivery of high quality and equitable education to a diverse future NP workforce."

 

“As a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, I intend to contribute my gifts to our community, the nursing profession, and our world.”
