Physician Assistant Program - Jacksonville
Faculty and Staff
Stephanie Collins, MSPAS, PA-C
Professor Collins joined Nova Southeastern in November 2010 as an Assistant Professor in the Physician Assistant Program.
She is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of North Florida receiving her Bachelor of Science in Health degree in 2002. During her undergraduate experiences as an Athletic Training student, she discovered the PA profession and her journey began. She graduated from Philadelphia University in 2004 with a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. While at PhilaU, she completed a Master's capstone teaching track with an eventual planned return to higher education.
Her clinical experiences have included working as a hospital based PA for an Interventional Cardiology group and most recently as an Otolaryngology PA. The high degree of acuity, problem solving skills and autonomy during her years in cardiology and ability to build interpersonal relationships with her patients have left her empowered, challenged and stimulated. While she holds these experiences in high regards; an opportunity to educate and inspire Physician Assistant students was second to none.
Professor Collins believes compassion and passion for educating both her patients and students have defined her personal success.
On a personal note she is a Jacksonville native and enjoys spending time with her family, dogs, running and attending Jacksonville Jaguar games.
