Dr. Iris Berryhill earned her DNP at Chamberlain College of Nursing, a MSN at the University of Phoenix and a BSN at Nova Southeastern University. During her twenty years of nursing, though her specialty remained medical surgical nursing, Dr. Berryhill held various nursing positions from multiple institutions and taught numerous nursing-specific courses to university students and hospital staff.

Currently, Dr. Berryhill is a part of the Quality Improvement Team at the Ron and Kathy Assaf School of Nursing. Dr. Berryhill conducted and presented her study titled, In-hospital Fall Prevention for the 65 and Older Patients, in which she shared her knowledge on recent innovations in fall prevention and patient safety. Her passion for patient safety is one of the main factors that encouraged her to solidify a career in nursing education. She is a consistent agent in community engagement such as the Alzheimer’s Foundation fundraiser to help with fundraising activities and other community events to help the underprivileged.
