Bettina Dixon

Assistant Professor
Nurse Anesthesia

Clinical Emphasis

My clinical area of expertise is adult nurse anesthesia. 


I am currently a part-time faculty member and my academic responsibilities include coordinating Physics and Chemistry of Anesthesia and teaching in nearly all other program courses. I also participate in many workshops and human simulation education throughout the curriculum. I was awarded the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing Dean’s Distinguished Teaching Award in 2003 and the Didactic Instructor of the Year Award from the Pennsylvania Association of Nurse Anesthetists (PANA) in 2000.


In the Nurse Anesthesia Department I serve on the Community Advisory Board. In the School of Nursing I currently serve on the Continuing Education Committee. I have served as a trustee on the local nurse anesthesia educational district as well as on PANA Board.
