LePage is originally from Boston, and she graduated from St. Joseph’s Health Center School of Nursing in Syracuse, N.Y. She received her bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate in nursing from Barry University, and worked in the areas of critical care and emergency nursing for 25 years before transitioning into advanced nursing practice in primary care.

LePage initiated the original primary care nursing on-campus practice in Barry University’s office of Student Health Services. She has taught undergraduate, graduate and doctoral courses in nursing, education and social work. LePage is presently collaborating on several qualitative research projects exploring critical issues in health care. She has served on more than 60 doctoral committees and is co-author of “Critical Care Concepts, Role, and Practice for the Acute Care Nurse Practitioner,” which received the American Journal of Nursing’s Book of the Year award.

LePage’s extensive academic and clinical experience, as well as her continued commitment to the University’s mission will further advance our outstanding nurse practitioner programs.
