Dr. Tasker-Weaver became chair of the nursing department in 2017. Dr. Tasker-Weaver has diverse clinical experience as a critical care/emergency/trauma nurse for over 15 years, as well as 5 years in nursing administration. Additionally, Dr. Tasker-Weaver has an advanced practice nursing license in psychiatric-mental health nursing and is board certified as an individual/family nurse psychotherapist. She was Co-Founder/Director and therapist of an outpatient mental health facility, Covenant Counseling Ministries, Inc., in Cumberland, Maryland.

Dr. Tasker-Weaver has been a nurse educator for over 30 years. She was employed as Professor of Nursing at Allegany College of Maryland for over 20 years, was an adjunct faculty member in the graduate online nursing program at Liberty University for 5 years, and was employed for 3 years at Frostburg State University. In addition to her nursing education, Dr. Tasker-Weaver also attended Zion Bible Institute in East Providence, Rhode Island with a focus on missions and was mentored by Dr. Richard Dobbins at Emerge Ministries, Inc. through the Institute of Pastoral Counseling program located in Akron, Ohio.

Dr. Susie, as her students refer to her, was always involved in youth activities and teaching students from Sunday School classes to Fine Arts Festivals and serving district officials as FAF adjudicator and nurse at youth camps. She and her husband Dale are involved in the SEU community as well as their church home at Victory Church. They have four adult children and seven grandchildren.

It is with great enthusiasm that Dr. Susie comes to SEU. “It has always been my desire to see Southeastern have a nursing program preparing the next generation to fulfill and to set free those who are oppressed. Nurses are in a unique position to accomplish those tasks, as we rely upon the Holy Spirit to the call of the Lord as written in Luke 4:18.”
