Martha “Marty” Desmond has been named the chairperson of the Nursing Department at Hudson Valley Community College. Desmond has 37 years of experience as a registered nurse. She joined the Hudson Valley faculty in 2008 and most recently served as the interim department chair.

In 2015, she earned a Merit Award for her dedication and commitment to the Nursing curriculum with a focus on simulation and critical thinking. She succeeds acting department chairperson Patricia Klimkewicz, and previously, Carol Bosco, who now serves as dean of the college’s School of Health Sciences.

Desmond is a member of many professional organizations, including Sigma Theta Tau, the American Association of Critical Care Nurses and the Northeastern New York Professional Nurses Organization, which she served as director-at-large.

Desmond earned a B.S. in nursing from Molloy College, and a M.S. in nursing as well as a post-master certificate as a clinical nurse specialist and acute care nurse practitioner from Sage Graduate School. She is pursuing a doctorate in nursing science from Sage, which she expects to complete this winter.
