Dr. Andrea Bresnahan is the associate director of programs and services at the Florida Center for Nursing (FNC), a workforce data center, and the Florida Action Coalition, a project of the FCN. She works directly with community members and statewide teams, such as the Suncoast Nursing Action Coalition (SNAC) to transform healthcare in Florida. Together with other partners and advocates as well as the unwavering support of the Florida Blue Foundation, the coalition functions to promote purposeful interventions in our state's primary areas of need.
Andrea has successfully led grants that provide leadership training for nurses, research, educational and collaborative opportunities, and board training for the nursing community in Florida, with the greater purpose of helping nurses transform healthcare in Florida.
Previously, Andrea worked in cultural and medical anthropology, both in Mexico and in the U.S., with a focus on diabetes and other diseases. The Mott Foundation Safe Energy Council's Southeast Collaborative Communications Training Initiative, media skills training, and outreach strategies inspired her to begin her career working with volunteers and coalitions.
Andrea received a doctorate at Samford University with a focus on Policy and Administration, a master's degree in Education, a bachelor's degree in Anthropology, and an associate's degree in Nursing.
