Associate Professor

Dr. Julie Manz joined the College of Nursing in 2003 as a Clinical Teaching Assistant in medical-surgical nursing, and was hired as faculty in 2005. She was promoted to Associate Professor and granted tenure in 2014. She serves as the Assistant Dean of the Undergraduate Nursing Program in which she oversees the traditional four-year and one-year accelerated BSN programs for the College of Nursing. Prior to that, Dr. Manz served as the BSN Program Chair and the Curriculum Coordinator for the Accelerated Nursing Curriculum. She offers course content in care management of populations with various medical surgical disorders, including gastrointestinal, neurological, and immune diseases.  Dr. Manz's research interests are in the areas of assessment of student learning in simulated and live clinical experiences, new and emerging clinical teaching models, interprofessional education, and correctional health care. Dr. Manz is a co-developer of the Creighton Competency Evaluation Instrument (C-CEI), a 23-item instrument to evaluate student learning in simulated clinical environments. The C-CEI is utilized internationally and in all 50 states to evaluate student performance in the clinical environment.
