Professor Connie Fleming became a full-time member of the team in Fall, 2015 having previously served as an adjunct professor at Southeastern University.
Professor Fleming has over 20 years of nursing experience. For the past 16 years, she has been a member of the Child Protection Team, providing medical evaluations, advocacy and expertise for children who are victims of abuse and neglect. A board-certified family nurse practitioner, Professor Fleming’s nursing career has mainly focused on community health, pediatric, and maternal-child populations. She feels strongly that child maltreatment is a public health problem and is passionate about being a part of the solution.
As a registered nurse, Professor Fleming was a senior community health nurse with a local health department, a Healthy Start nurse, and a neonatal intensive care nurse. She has been blessed to have participated in short-term mission projects outside the United States. As the health projects coordinator for Trash Mountain Project, she led the development of a holistic health program in a trash dump community in the Dominican Republic.
Teaching has always been an integral part of Professor Fleming’s nursing career as well as her volunteer work in the community and her home church. For example, she and her husband Dave have hosted a small-group fellowship and Bible study for the past 14 years.
Professor Fleming shared, “I love the Lord, I love nursing, and I love teaching. I am overjoyed at the opportunity to integrate all of these at Southeastern University.”
