Mary Ann Draye MN, ARNP, MPH, FNP-BC

Assistant Professor, Emerita
Former Director of the Family Nurse Practitioner Program

After forty years as a stalwart advocate for NPs and as faculty in the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Program at the University of Washington School of Nursing, I am now retired emerita. I served as the Director of the FNP Program for the past 13 years and was instrumental in transitioning the curriculum to the Doctor of Nursing Practice. My education includes BSN from Loyola University, Chicago, and masters at the University of Michigan. I am nationally certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Areas of practice included primary care at USPHS Indian Health in San Carlos, Arizona, Yessler Terrace Health Clinic, Seattle and UWMC. Publications include articles and book chapters on health promotion, behavior change, NP Pioneers (study conducted with Dr. Marie Annette Brown), and transforming education and practice with the DNP.


What classes do you teach?

I continue in a selective teaching role in the DNP Family and Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program.

What do you love about the UW School of Nursing?

The students! I loved growing and learning with students, faculty and staff colleagues in a very stimulating environment within the UW School of Nursing.
