Andrea Bresnahan


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 and the Florida Blue Foundation's unwavering support, the coalition functions to promote purposeful interventions in our state's primary areas of need.

Andrea has successfully led grants that transform healthcare in Florida by providing leadership training for nurses and board members and creating research, educational, and collaboration opportunities for the nursing community.

Andrea previously 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.
