Dr. Malinda L. Whitlow, DNP, FNP-BC is a triple `Hoo (having earned a DNP, MSN and BSN at UVA, and a current member of the Raven Society and of the Beta Kappa chapter of Sigma nursing honor society. She is also the UVA Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Director and has published research focusing on team-based learning and integrating technology to improve interprofessional communication at the bedside.
Malinda comes to us from George Washington University in Washington, DC, where she had been an assistant professor for 6-1/2 years, and where she directed the nursing school’s Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program for the last four years.
At George Washington University, Malinda’s teaching and mentoring roles were expansive: she taught both medical-surgical and community health courses, labs and clinicals, as well as pharmacology and health assessment classes. She oversaw undergraduates’ clinical care at inpatient, long-term care and community sites, mentored students completing capstone projects, and led clinical trips to global sites in both Haiti and Ecuador.
In her academic career, Malinda has been an administrative leader, too. As ABSN program director and interim assistant dean of the nursing school’s undergraduate division, she developed programs and led revisions of curricula, participated in budget planning, program assessment, and launched and oversaw new student tutoring and mentorship programs. As a faculty member, Malinda was repeatedly tapped to serve on a variety of university and nursing committees, including ones related to interprofessional education, research, healthy work environments, diversity and faculty workload.
Currently a family nurse practitioner at UVA Health’s Employee Health Same Day Clinic, Malinda – a native of Texas – earned George Washington Nursing’s Excellence in Undergraduate Mentoring and Advising award in 2017, its Excellence in Student Life Award in 2015, and was a Sigma Nursing Faculty Leadership Academy Scholar from 2016-17.
