Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The University of Indianapolis has chosen Anne Thomas, its interim dean of nursing, to hold the position outright.

Thomas, 48, had been a part-time teacher at UIndy’s School of Nursing since 1996 and since 2008 had been its full-time director of graduate programs. She succeeds Mary McHugh, who was dean of nursing from 2007 to 2009.

Thomas did her nursing training at the University of Texas at Arlington and earned a doctorate in nursing from Texas Woman’s University College of Nursing.

A year from now, the UIndy nursing school will introduce its first doctoral program in nursing.

Thomas and her husband, Robert Patterer, live in Bargersville and have four children.
