She has authored several book chapters, publications in academic journals, and co-authored two textbooks on aspects of cardiac care research. MacLeod has conducted nursing research funded by the Joyce C. Clifford Organization, NIH INBRE, and NINR R01 since 2004. She has received many accolades throughout her prestigious career, including the Abbot Gerald McCarthy, O.S.B. ’36 Faculty Member of the Year Award by the Student Government Association in 2019.

“Our community at Saint Anselm College knows Carrie well as a collaborator and faculty thought leader. Carrie has tremendous institutional knowledge and solid departmental and interdisciplinary relationships,” said Dean of the Jean School of Nursing and Health Sciences Diane Uzarski, DNP, MPH, RN. “She is deeply committed to advancing our nursing program to the next iteration of excellence, supporting our faculty and staff, enhancing course content across the curriculum, and lastly, interdisciplinary collaborations across the Jean School and Saint Anselm College.”

Current Director of Undergraduate Nursing Dr. Maureen O'Reilly, Ph.D., RN is retiring this spring following a long, successful career teaching and then leading the college’s nursing program.

The Jean School of Nursing and Health Sciences at Saint Anselm College was established in July 2023. The school will move into its permanent home in a new $35 million state-of-the-art facility, Grappone Hall, in the fall of 2025.

Led by Dr. Diane Uzarski, inaugural dean of the Jean School of Nursing and Health Sciences, the school houses the undergraduate nursing, the Continuing Nursing Education (CNE), health sciences, and community and public health.
