Dr. Joan Tilghman
Chairperson, DNP Program
Helene Fuld School of Nursing
Coppin State University
Dr. Joan Tilghman was instrumental in developing the Helene Fuld School of Nursing’s master’s program, which helped nursing graduates become faculty. It is a group that is growing and becoming more diverse.
Tilghman also wrote the proposal for the school’s Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program, which admitted its first cohort in May 2015. Those students graduated last fall.
Tilghman serves on the advisory board for the National Women’s Prison Project and the editorial board for the Association of Black Nursing Faculty Journal.
