Beth Delaney


Beth Delaney loves Jesus! She serves as an adjunct professor in the Cedarville University School of Nursing as well as a Family Nurse Practitioner focusing in the areas of oncology, palliative care, and hospice at Dayton Physicians Network. Prior to teaching she dedicated over 20 years as a nurse leader at Miami Valley Hospital and The Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center-Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.   Developing innovative programs that serve patients and their families as well as inspiring others to join in the efforts and grow as individuals is her passion.

Why Cedarville? -God called me to work fulltime for Him and I am SO glad he did!  It is an honor to serve alongside the nurse faculty team that He has assembled at Cedarville University to show others how to use nursing as a ministry for Christ.
