Philip Greiner, director of the School of Nursing at San Diego State University, has been elected to the board of directors for the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), based in Washington, D.C. In this role, he will help shape the future of nursing education nationally. The association counts more than 800 schools of nursing as members.

Greiner came to SDSU in 2012 to become director of the School of Nursing. In addition to his service here, he is president of the California Association of Colleges of Nursing and has served on numerous committees and task forces of the AACN.

“Service to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing has been a part of my life for the past 10 years,” Greiner said. “I am thrilled to have this opportunity to serve on the board of directors. Of top importance are maintaining the integrity of the baccalaureate degree in nursing and enhancing doctoral education options.”

His position on the board should boost the prominence of SDSU’s nursing program as well, he added.

“Having San Diego State University featured so prominently on this national stage benefits our university, School of Nursing, faculty, and students by increasing our name recognition and our involvement in decisions that guide academic nursing for the immediate future,” Greiner said.
