On Thursday, March 25, Point Loma Nazarene University's (PLNU) School of Nursing celebrated the career of faculty member Deana Raley Noble, Ph.D.c, M.P.H., M.S.N., R.N., who has been a nurse for 50 years.

"It's unusual to find someone who has been actively engaged in nursing for so many years," said Barb Taylor, Ph.D., dean of the School of Nursing.

Noble has worked in a variety of nursing roles throughout her career, including as a hospital pediatric and adult medical-surgical nurse; as a school, home, and migrant health nurse; as a family nurse practitioner; and as a nurse educator. She has also been involved in organizing and leading international work, study, and mission trips for students as well as service work in the local community.

Noble has taught at PLNU since 1982 with a brief hiatus from 1988 until 1994. During her years at PLNU, she has appreciated the opportunity to work in a supportive Christian university and finds it a privilege to teach and supervise students who have a heart to serve others.

Throughout her career, Noble has highly valued education. She is a Ph.D. candidate in the University of San Diego's nursing program, and she has a master's in public health from San Diego State University, a master's in nursing from Cal State Long Beach, a bachelor's from Cal State Northridge, and a diploma in nursing from the Bishop Johnson School of Nursing at the Hospital of the Good Samaritan in Los Angeles.
