President Michael Claire will be recommending Dr. Enna Trevathan to Chancellor Galatolo and to the Board of Trustees as CSM’s new Director of Nursing. Dr. Trevathan holds a doctor of nursing practice from the University of San Francisco (USF), an MBA from Holy Names College, a master’s in nursing administration and management from Holy Names College, a bachelor of science in nursing from University of Phoenix, and an associate of science in nursing from Moorpark College.
Dr. Trevathan currently serves as the associate dean for educational outreach at USF. Prior to her current position, she served as the co-chair of RN graduate programs at USF. Dr. Trevathan also served as assistant professor and director of the RN to MSN online program at USF. Dr. Trevathan has also taught nursing at Holy Names College and CSU-Dominquez Hills. Finally, Dr. Trevathan has held nursing and nursing management positions in a number of medical facilities, including the Veterans Administration Hospital in Palo Alto, Kaiser Permanente, Watsonville Community Hospital, and the UCLA Medical Center, among others. When asked why she wanted to join CSM, Dr. Trevathan said that she has an associate’s degree in nursing from a California community college. She felt that it was the time in her career to “give back” to the system that gave her such a great start. Enna will start at CSM in June so that there is some overlap before Jane retires.
