Erin Donovan,EdD, began her career at CMU in fall 2018, but she has been teaching full-time for just under three years. Donovan has taught in both graduate and undergraduate programs. Prior to teaching full-time, she taught adjunct in Practical Nursing and BSN programs, while working full-time at a critical access hospital. 

She believes inspiring and encouraging students will enhance learning and create an atmosphere where academic excellence, scholarship and leadership will attribute to personal and professional growth. She also believes it is important to allow students an opportunity to take a role in their own learning; where students are able to utilize their own previous knowledge, experiences and current interests to facilitate learning opportunities for everyone. 

At CMU, Donovan is teaching in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Her interests include research related to professional role socialization processes in nursing curriculum in preparation for students transition to practice, leadership and education.

When Donovan is not teaching, she enjoys crocheting, camping, spending time with her family and baking.
