Gene Harkless

Dr. Gene Harkless DNSC, ARNP, is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Nursing at the University of New Hampshire. A family nurse practitioner who has taught at UNH since 1985, Dr. Harkless is a frequent mentor and enjoys working with students such as Colleen as they take on international endeavors. “For past recipients of an International Research Opportunities Program (IROP) grant, it has been life-changing. They create a whole new lens through which to see the world,” she said. “Students grow to understand their own academic abilities, to ask a question and search for answers and perspectives outside of expert text materials.”
