Susan Leddy

UW Nursing Dean from 1981-1984

Susan Leddy, Dean of the UWYO School of Nursing from 1981-1984

Susan Leddy, PhD, RN, was won over to Wyoming after attending an American Association of Colleges of Nursing Dean's meeting in Jackson, Wyoming. Her love of the Tetons enticed her to apply for a position in the School of Nursing. Her education and previous work experience had been in the east. She graduated from Skidmore College, earned her MS from Boston University, and a PhD from New York University. She was dean of the School of Nursing from 1981 through 1984. She then became dean of the College of Health Sciences, a position she held from 1984-1986.

Her book, Conceptual Bases of Professional Nursing, was in the fifth edition. She was in the process of completing two more books. Holistic Health Promotion: Theory and Research and Knowledge Development for Nursing Science.

Susan held offices in the National League for Nursing and was on the American Association of Colleges of Nursing research committee. She left Wyoming to return to the east where she became dean at the Widener School of Nursing. She was a part-time professor at Widener and lived in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. Dr. Leddy died in 2007.
