Nora MacLachlan is the Dean of the School of Health and Wellness at Bow Valley College.  She has extensive experience as an instructor, having taught almost all of the courses in the Practical Nurse program at a college in southern Alberta. Nora also coordinated and developed clinical practice guidelines, and facilitated access improvement work in health care settings and coordinated building teams in physician offices. Prior to leading the School of Health and Wellness at Bow Valley College, she was an auditor, and a nursing manager in the continuing care environment.
