Heidi SanbornMSN, RN, CCRN, DNP
Heidi Sanborn is Clinical Assistant Professor and Director of the RN-BSN and Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP) in the College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University. Her career began over 25 years ago in business before following her heart and becoming a nurse. After returning to school for a second degree, she earned her BSN from Salem State University in Massachusetts, leading to a bedside career in both clinical and leadership positions in Med/Surg, progressive care, and critical care. Her career path has been nontraditional, proving that there is no one right way to build your nursing career.
In 2009, she moved with her family to Arizona, trading up from snowflakes to sunshine. Since the move, she has taught at the clinical, associate, and baccalaureate settings, earning a DNP in Innovation Leadership to grow her career in academic system leadership. Heidi has earned distinction as a Certified Nurse Educator (CNE), and focuses her scholarship efforts on interprofessional education, collaboration, and practice through publications and presentations in a variety of national and international forums.
