Clinical Associate Professor at College of Nursing and Health Innovation

Dr. Susan Baxley graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from The University of Texas System School of Nursing. Her Master of Science in Nursing is from Texas Woman’s University and her PhD is from The University of Texas at Arlington. During her education, she received scholarships and the Ferne and Evan Kyba dissertation fellowship to assist with her studies. She also received an award from Southern Nursing Research Society for a podcast What is a Nurse Scientist? Dr. Baxley’s research and publications have focused on the Mexican woman and mentoring.  

Dr. Susan Baxley has practiced nursing for over 45 years specializing in maternal-infant health. Her expertise in education and mentoring of patients, staff, and students led her to a research focus with Mexican origin women becoming mothers. As a maternal/infant nurse with experience as an educator and program director, she has expertise in teaching and mentoring others using special projects and creative program designs to achieve desired results. Dr. Baxley worked on several projects related to mentoring including two research grants with a focus on the success of diverse students. As a Clinical Associate Professor in the MSN program teaching Research and Theory in Nursing, she mentors students in their understanding of the research process.

She serves as Director of the PhD in Nursing Mentoring Program where she provides guidance and special programs to both protégés and mentors that help the protégés to become nurse scientists. This interest has led her to a new research focus on mentoring and a book, Mentoring today's nurses: A Global Perspective for Success. She has served on the March of Dimes professional education committee in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area and currently serves on the Healthy Tarrant County Collaboration Steering Committee. She supports the University by serving on College of Nursing and University committees. She also serves on dissertation committees and mentors Honor’s students as they complete their thesis.
