Biography

Dr. Elizabeth Moxley has been a part-time faculty member at the College of DuPage since 2012. During this time, she has been instrumental in designing and implementing the clinical component for the course, Family Health Nursing; a course focused on nursing care in the community for individuals across the lifespan. Dr. Moxley has several years of clinical experience caring for individuals in the pediatric and adult intensive care settings and as a pediatric and adult clinical instructor. Dr. Moxley’s initial interest was in exercise physiology, specifically the benefits that result from exercise for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Dr. Moxley’s initially, clinical experience, therefore, was focused on caring for complex cardiovascular patients in an adult intensive care setting. During nursing school, however, Dr. Moxley thoroughly enjoyed working with the pediatric population, and transitioned to a pediatric ICU to pursue this interest. Consistent with the need to specify research interests while pursuing a PhD, Dr. Moxley decided to focus on the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease in adults while working with investigational new cardiovascular drugs for several years. Dr. Moxley also has experience as a Program Chair for a school of nursing, service in the U.S. Army Nursing Corps, and as Content Associate for the NCLEX-RNâ exam at the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN). Dr. Moxley is intrigued by the complexity of nursing education, and enjoys helping students understand complex science concepts and nursing content in simple terms. She hopes to one day more thoroughly explore cellular changes that result from exercise in addition to continuing to work with students in the clinical setting.
