Cheryl Draszkiewicz Schlamb, DNP, CRNP

Associate Professor


I am a true believer in nursing education with strong underpinnings of evidence-based nursing practice. I actively practice as a Nurse Practitioner. I participate in leadership positions in my regional and state organizations. I enjoy my role as a nursing educator and am an advocate, coach and a cheerleader for all of my nursing students. I am open and approachable. I have taught across the undergraduate pre-licensure, post-licensure, master’s and doctorate curriculum at West Chester University.
