Dr. Toi Durham was recently named the Director of Undergraduate Curriculum and Accreditation in the School of Nursing and Allied Health. She looks forward to this role in continuing the tradition of nursing excellence at HBU. She holds a Master’s in Nursing Leadership and Education, and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. Her mother, a nursing professor for 25 years at UT School of Nursing and retired from Prairie View School of Nursing, inspired her to pursue a career in nursing. Durham began her nursing career 28 years ago and has worked in many disciplines, including Med-Surg, Case Management, Legal, Travel, Public Health, Infectious Disease, Forensic and Foreign Travel Nursing, however, early on she realized her passion for Mental Health Nursing. Of her 28 years in the nursing field, the last 17 have been in various roles within Mental Health nursing. She has served in higher education for the last seven years in different roles which helped her prepare for her purpose of being a Nurse Leader in academia. To serve God is to serve others and is the greatest form of charity, believes Durham. She is honored to be able to serve students at Houston Baptist University and to share the Gospel of the Lord. God blessed her with a wonderful husband, a recently retired sheriff deputy, and together the couple has three children (ages 26, 17, 15). Our 17-year old will be heading off to college in August. In her free time, she enjoys praise and worship and enjoys deep-sea fishing, gardening and reading. Embark on a journey that provides a learning experience that inspires students to pursue their passion for academic, spiritual, and professional excellence as a result of our central confession, “Jesus Christ is Lord.”
