BLOOMSBURG—Author and health care consultant Kathleen D. Pagana will explain her action-oriented approach to leadership during Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s Faust Memorial Nurse Lectureship Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in Carver Hall, Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium. The program, “Momentum Leadership: How to Increase Momentum by Capitalizing on Hidden Opportunities,” is open to the public free of charge.

Pagana, a health care professional with more than 25 years experience, will tackle the question: How do leaders get from where they are to where they want to be? Known as Momentum Leadership, Pagana’s approach aims to motivate leaders to use knowledge, protocol and courage to guide, inspire and direct themselves and others.

A resident of Williamsport, Pagana wrote 15 books and co-wrote Mosby’s Diagnostic and Laboratory Test Reference, which sold more than 500,000 copies and was translated into four languages. She began her career in the Army Nurse Corps, achieving the rank of captain, and served more than 20 years as a professor, faculty chair and academic dean in Lycoming College’s nursing department. She earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland and master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. Now president of Pagana Seminars and Presentations, she offers programs focusing on the challenges of leadership.
