Allison C. Munn – PhD, RN

Dr. Allison Munn began teaching the undergraduate Nursing Pediatrics course at Francis Marion University in 2015 as an Adjunct Instructor of Nursing. In January 2017, she joined the faculty in a full-time capacity as an Assistant Professor of Nursing. Dr. Munn received her BSN from Clemson University in 2001, and upon graduation began her nursing career in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at McLeod Regional Medical Center. After working in the clinical field of Pediatrics for 11 years, Dr. Munn left the bedside to pursue a career in academia. In November 2016, she received her PhD in Nursing Science from the Medical University of South Carolina with a focus on vulnerable populations. Dr. Munn’s research interests include breastfeeding and Baby-Friendly practices. She is published in an international peer-reviewed journal about the impact in the United States of the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative on breastfeeding and early infant health outcomes. Dr. Munn has also presented nationally the results of a mixed-methods study on factors influencing African American mothers’ adoption of Baby-Friendly practices and associated breastfeeding decisions. Dr. Munn is a native of the Pee Dee Region and has a passion for serving the healthcare needs of the area and for educating future nursing leaders of the community.

Affordability

FMU has the lowest cost of attendance of any college in South Carolina, based on rankings from CollegeFactual.com.

Meaningful Academics

The liberal arts remain the foundation of a great education for all FMU students, but we’re developing high-caliber professional programs to meet the 21st century needs of both our students and our community.

The Right Size

No giant lecture halls here. We keep class sizes small and the crowds thin at FMU because that’s the environment that best facilitates learning. A 15:1 student-professor ratio, and right about 4,000 students sound like “just right” numbers to us.

Aesthetics

Students can walk our lovely, tree-lined campus in 20 minutes, but most take longer because in a place this pretty, you have to stop and enjoy nature’s beauty.
