Campbell Earns PhD


Dr. Julie Campbell, assistant professor of nursing, recently earned her PhD from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.


" I was surprised by how much I gained beyond academics from the experience of earning a PhD," said Campbell. "I grew personally, intellectually, professionally, and spiritually in ways that I'm not sure would have happened without my years in graduate school."


Her dissertation, titled "Interactive Health Literacy and Self-Management of Lung Cancer Symptoms," explored how health literacy and patient interaction with healthcare providers related to symptom self-management for lung cancer.


Campbell was also recently named the Director of Graduate Studies in Nursing at Lee this semester, and she continues to teach nursing courses in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. She joined the Lee faculty in 2018 after working as a care manager at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Illinois.


In both the BSN and DNP programs, Campbell brings an understanding of the need for holistic care within a complex healthcare system to the classroom.


Campbell has four children ranging from ages 9 to 16 with her husband of 18 years, Luke. When she's not teaching, Campbell enjoys hiking, traveling, and watching the Chicago Cubs.
