The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center has appointed its second new dean this week – this time for the College of Nursing.

UNM has selected Christine E. Kasper, currently with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, to lead its nursing college. She replaces Nancy Ridenour, who left last year to take a position with Barnes-Jewish College in St. Louis.

Kasper currently works as a senior nurse executive in the Office of Nursing Services at Veterans Affairs. She is also a professor in the Daniel K. Inouye Graduate School of Nursing at the Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Md., according to a UNM news release.

She was previously a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of California, Los Angeles. She has been principal investigator on grants from the National Institutes of Health and NASA among others, and presently serves as editor of the “Annual Review of Nursing Research.”

Kasper earned her doctorate from the University of Michigan.

UNM — which lost three of its four HSC deans in 2017 for positions at other institutions — has now filled two of the three vacancies. That includes an announcement earlier this week that Donald Godwin would take over permanently as the College of Pharmacy dean. He had been serving as the college’s interim dean.
