College of Nursing


Mr. Boursaw joined the University of New Mexico College of Nursing in 2012 as an Instructor, with prior experience working at UNM's RWJF Center for Health Policy as a staff statistician and at Augsburg College as faculty in the Department of Mathematics. Over time, his research interests have expanded from a purely theoretical focus on geometric group theory to encompass the fascinating quantitative phenomena that arise at the intersection of mathematical/statistical methodologies and lived experience. A postcard photograph of Audre Lorde with her quote "When I dare to be powerful -- to use my strength in service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid" hangs on his office door and he is most at peace camping at 10,000 feet on a clear summer's night with bright blue down booties at his side to use PRN.
