College of Nursing’s Ann Joyce Awarded Culture Coin

Ann Joyce, PhD, associate director of advanced practice initiatives at the USF College of Nursing, has been recognized by Usha Menon, PhD, RN, FAAN, interim dean at the College of Nursing, as a Culture Champion and was awarded a Culture Coin for her “unfailing heart for cooperation across the college and community.”

Dr. Joyce, who joined the College of Nursing in 2018, plays a critical role as the project director of both the Peds to Succeed and EnRICHed Families grants.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, her leadership in community outreach was the driving force behind bi-weekly donations of critical and educational materials to the families and children served by the R.I.C.H. houses in the college’s continued partnership with the Tampa Police Department.

In addition, Dr. Joyce developed surveys to identify faculty and staff to volunteer for the COVID-19 testing in Hillsborough County in support of the USF Health initiative.

The challenges of working remotely has not stopped her. Dr. Joyce helped keep the Port of Tampa Seafarer’s project on track by developing a draft budget for the program. Lastly, she oversaw the launch of a website to ensure all faculty development continuing educational programs continued in an online format during the pandemic.

Faculty and staff who exemplify the values of USF Health are awarded with a Culture Coin for their outstanding dedication and commitment to upholding the mission of USF Health.

Dr. Joyce received her coin from Dr. Menon on May 21.
