SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - The University of Rhode Island has named an associate dean at Boston College’s nursing school to leads its own school of nursing.

Barbara Wolfe, associate dean for research and professor at the Connell School of Nursing at BC, takes over at URI this summer after a nationwide search. She succeeds Mary Sullivan, who has served as interim dean of nursing since 2012.

In addition to her work at BC, Wolfe also held faculty positions in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

Wolfe calls URI’s nursing school an “esteemed, thriving, and enriching community,” with “exceptionally gifted students, faculty, and staff, as well as steadfast, supportive alumni.”

Wolfe holds adult psychiatric and mental health clinical nurse specialist board certification from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
