School of Nursing and Health Studies

Elizabeth Madison, Senior Lecturer

Beth Madison, PhD
Senior Lecturer

My name is Beth Madison. I am dedicated to finding and promoting ways for nurses to use their skills to support better health, for individuals, families, and communities. I worked as a nurse for many years before I decided to return to school for my graduate degree. I have attended women in labor, birth, and post partum, worked as a women’s advocate in my community, done outreach among homeless youth, and served on many committees charged with improving community relationships to promote health services.


My scholarship is the scholarship of teaching. I am most interested in creating learning environments in which all people feel included, where we are able to explore ideas and strategies for recreating a society in which social justice is a motivator, and where we examine issues that are relevant in our daily lives.
