Robert Morris University named Valerie M. Howard as dean of its School of Nursing and Health Sciences, a post she has held on an interim basis since September.

Howard came to RMU from the University of Pittsburgh in 2004. Previously, she served as assistant dean for external affairs of the nursing school, director of development for the school and director of the Regional Research and Innovation in Simulation Education Center at RMU. She has helped raise more than $6 million for the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, the school said in a news release.

Howard earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Science in Nursing and doctorate in higher education administration, both from the University of Pittsburgh. She replaces Lynda Davidson, the school's founding dean, who returned to the faculty.
