SON Welcomes Angela Phillips as Undergraduate Pre-Licensure Program Director

Learn More about Angela

Angela Phillips joined the School of Nursing in 2020 as a clinical adjunct professor. She became full-time faculty in July of 2021, then the program director for the undergraduate Pre-Licensure program in October of 2021. She earned her master’s of science in nursing in 2019 from Northwest Nazarene University, where she studied nurse retention in rural healthcare systems by improving nurse autonomy and empowerment by implementing a shared nurse governance council. “My passion and love for rural nursing and the need to retain good nurses in these high-demand areas contributed to my research and interest in this topic.” Says Phillips. 

Phillips is an active member of several professional organizations including Nurse Leaders of Idaho, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the Idaho Nurses Association, and the American Nurses Association. She is a skilled leader in clinical and educational environments, bringing with her experience in organizational and transformational leadership. 

In her spare time, Angie and her family manage their u-pick orchard in Emmett, Idaho, where they grow peaches, cherries, apples, and berries. She also loves to get cozy at home with a good book and cup of tea, and sometimes their dog, Bodie, or their cat, Squeakers, will join her!


Boise State University School of Nursing is excited to share our official CCNE reaccreditation! Our Baccalaureate, Masters, and Doctoral programs have all been approved for accreditation through 2030. Thank you to our supportive students and community partners!
