The School of Nursing Welcomes New Director, Dr. Tom Olson


It gives us great pleasure to welcome Dr. Tom Olson, our new Director for the CSUSM School of Nursing.

He comes with a wealth of experience as a faculty member and administrator in nursing and allied health at Northeastern University, Mercy College, New York University, the University of Texas at El Paso, and the University of Hawaii. He holds a PhD in Nursing from the University of Minnesota and has completed funded research on obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and the evolution of nursing education. Dr. Olson’s clinical focus is psychiatric-mental health nursing, with major interests in mindfulness training, anxiety, and addiction.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Olson to Cal State San Marcos.
