Jan Haley, Ph.D., has more than 35 years experience as a nurse clinician and more than 15 years as a nurse educator. She received her BSN from APU, on which she reflects as one of the most integrative and meaningful experiences of her nursing career. With clinical interests in vulnerable populations of children and families, she went on to earn a Master of Science in Nursing with certification as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and a School Nurse Credential. She completed her Ph.D. in Nursing at the University of Hawaii. There she also earned two post-master’s certificates: one for Family Nurse Practitioner and another for Interdisciplinary Disability and Diversity Studies.
Haley’s clinical practice includes early intervention programs and school-based health clinics in Pomona, Hawaii, and Nevada; youth outreach clinics for runaway teens and clinics for the homeless; and in-home visitation programs for children at risk for developmental delays or abuse, or who are medically fragile. She has also worked as a practitioner in college health and occupational health clinics.
Haley has taught in both undergraduate and graduate programs with a focus on the community, pediatrics, and advanced practice nursing. She conducts research with medically fragile children and those at risk for abuse and developmental delays, as well as the parent caregivers.
