Dr. Maija Anderson has over 20 years of nursing experience, in the practice setting, professional nursing associations and in academia. An accomplished grant writer, she has secured over 8 million dollars in federal and state funding, to improve outcomes in minority nursing students, developing distance learning programs that increased nursing program capacity for minority nursing students, and in support of faculty mentoring and development for minority nursing faculty.

Her doctoral research focused on evaluating characteristics of health care providers and how those characteristics impacted their prescribing practices of pain medication to African-Americans in the Emergency Department. Her research interests and community advocacy include evaluating and advocating for the need for implementing protocols for healthcare providers treating victims of excessive use of police force and strategies for improving educational outcomes in minority nursing students.
