School of Nursing and Health Studies

Dale Fukura, Lecturer

 Dale Fukura, MN, RN, APFNS           


I began my nursing career as a school nurse followed by working as a pediatric staff nurse and then a pediatric charge nurse. In 2002, I began the RN to BSN program at the University of Washington, Bothell (UWB).  It was during this program that I found a passion for Forensic Nursing so, after graduating from UWB, I entered the Master of Nursing - Forensic Nurse Program at the University of Washington, Seattle campus. For more than 11 years, I have worked in the field of Forensic Nursing and enjoy sharing this passion with others. My health care practice has focused not only on pediatrics but also on sexual and physical violence across lifespan and gender, as well as the psychosocial impact on offenders and victims.  I am excited for the opportunity to be a part of this diverse faculty as a lecturer.
