With experience in the acute medical/surgical, orthopedic and long-term mental health areas of nursing, Dr. Davison enjoys preparing future nurses for their careers. She has served on Olivet’s nursing faculty since 1984, teaching courses in both the undergraduate and graduate programs.
Currently, she is developing Olivet’s nursing research thread while teaching research in the B.S.N., R.N.-B.S.N. and M.S.N. curriculum areas, as well as serving as department chair in this interim.
Dr. Davison is a member of Sigma Theta Tau, the international nursing honor society, and helped start the Kappa Sigma chapter at Olivet.
For relaxation and fun, Dr. Davison spends her time reading and pursuing a variety of arts and crafts projects.
She is the mother of two adult daughters. One lives with her at home and the other is working toward a degree in nursing.
