Denise Campbell, DNP, RN, ACNS-BC, CEN, CHSE

Assistant Professor

I received my Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) in August of 2017 with a focus on nursing communication from Michigan State University. I received my Masters in Nursing as a Clinical Nurse Specialist/Nursing Education from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2012. I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Oakland University in 1984. 

I joined the faculty of U of M Flint in Fall of 2017. I have been a nurse for over 30 years and have an extensive background in emergency nursing and education. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Michigan-Flint, I was practicing in a Clinical Nurse Specialist role for the emergency center at Beaumont Health System, Royal Oak Michigan. While in this role I utilized different teaching learning strategies including the use of simulation based learning. I designed, instituted and lead a 6 month Graduate Nurse Internship program to promote the transition of graduate nurses to the emergency center. 

I am a member of the Emergency Nurses Association, Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning, National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialist and the Society for Simulation in Healthcare.



I am the lead faculty for Adult Health Care I (NUR240) and Adult Health Care II (NUR340) in the pre-licensure accelerated nursing program. I also am a co-chair for DNP student research projects (NUR903).



The primary focus of my research is simulation, communication, team work and graduate nurses. I have presented at multiple conferences on the use of simulation with graduate nurses. My DNP project was focused on communication between nurses introducing bedside shift report within the emergency center.



I sit on the Institute of Emergency Advance Practice Council with the Emergency Nurses Association.
