Bio

Dr. Fowler has more than 20 years of nursing experience and over 12 years in academic nursing education. Her clinical expertise is focused on acute and critically ill adults within hospital settings. She is proud to serve as the Director of Nurse Practitioner Programs and the Program Coordinator of the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP) concentration. Dr. Fowler is recognized internationally as an Institute for Healthcare Improvement Fellow (class of 2020) for leadership in quality improvement, nationally recognized in the American Association of Critical-care Nurses' 2017 Circle of Excellence for contributions to the development of critical care nurses, and recognized as a Governor John Bel Edwards appointed member of the COVID-19 Health Equity Taskforce for Louisiana. 

Dr. Fowler is especially dedicated to a life of service to the profession and community at large as an active member of several professional nursing and medical organizations, and health-related or faith-based community organizations. She has formerly served or currently serves in various leadership roles at the state and national level. 

"As a leader in nursing, I strategically evaluate and 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."
