Marcella M. Rutherford, Ph.D.

Marcella M. Rutherford, Ph.D., M.B.A., M.S.N., R.N., dean of NSU’s College of Nursing, is one of three newly elected board members of the Nursing Consortium of South Florida.

Dr. Rutherford will serve a two-year term, along with other newly elected members: Jamie Wiggins, M.S., R.N., CCRN, NEA-BC, FACHE, administrative director inpatient services, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, and Leslee Gross, R.N., MHCA, assistant vice president of operations, Telehealth Center, Baptist Health South Florida.

The Nursing Consortium of South Florida, founded in 1997, is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation whose strength lies in being the nexus for collaboration by the nurse leaders of its member organizations, which include South Florida’s leading hospitals, nursing schools, staffing agencies and other organizations that employ nurses in South Florida.

The Consortium’s mission is to identify and address factors causing a nursing shortage in South Florida. It unites nursing practice and education from across the region to address the area’s need for culturally and technically competent nurses, by cultivating interest in nursing careers, advocating for the interests of the profession, and improving the public’s understanding of nursing concerns and the perception of the nursing profession.
