Nancy May, D.N.P., RN-BC, NEA-BC, has been appointed the next chief nurse executive for the U-M Health System, effective immediately. May has been serving as the interim chief nurse executive since March 2019. 

May joined Michigan Medicine four years ago and has served as the chief nursing officer for the U-M Medical Group. She previously held acute care and ambulatory leadership positions at Baylor Scott and White Health and the Cleveland Clinic. She received her B.S.N. from Bowling Green State University, her M.S.N. from the University of Akron and completed her D.N.P. at the University of Alabama. 

In the chief nurse executive role, May will provide strategic direction and guidance for the continued growth and evolution of the organization’s nursing practice. She will work closely with leadership teams in UH/CVC, C&W and UMMG to continue to drive innovations and best practices that facilitate the highest quality nursing care. May will also bring her extensive experience with Magnet standards to help focus efforts for re-designation in 2021.

She will continue to serve as the chief nursing officer for the U-M Medical Group as she evaluates the infrastructure needed to successfully manage the permanent position for both roles. 

Please congratulate and support May as the chief nurse executive!
