Faculty Profile

Lorraine Mautner
School of Nursing

As NCLEX  Success Coordinator for the School of Nursing my focus is to assist students to become successful not only in passing the NCLEX (National Council Licsensure Examination) but to be academically successful at Samuel Merritt University. I assist students at the Oakland and San Francisco Peninsula Campuses (San Mateo), my schedule varies between the two campuses.

2011 California State University Dominguez Hills, Masters of Science, Nursing Education


1988 University of San Diego, SD, CA  Bachelors of Science, Nursing


1984 San Diego City College, SD, CA, Associate of Science, Nursing (Registered Nurse 1984, , Licensed Vocational Nurse 1983, Certified Nursing Assistant 1982)

I am interested in the way students process information and are able to translate that process to better testing outcomes. Although my focus is testing sucess, I find that teaching students to apply the same organizational and goal oriented strategies to the clinical setting are also benificial in being an efficient and effective nurse.
