Campus health clinic eyes April reopening

Friday Apr 07, 2017


The Indiana University Northwest School of Nursing is pleased to introduce Dr. Tawa Ibikunle-Salami, clinical assistant professor in the School of Nursing. 

Ibikunle-Salami will serve in the dual role of professor and coordinator of the new Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), family nurse practitioner (FNP) program as well as director/nurse practitioner of the Campus Health and Wellness Center.

Located on the first floor of the Dunes Medical/Professional Building, the center serves students, faculty and staff, and will reopen later this month with limited services until additional staff is hired.

Ibikunle-Salami’s primary area of expertise is in primary care of the family with a focus on health and wellness. She has experience as a faculty member, a family nurse practitioner, and as a staff nurse in acute and critical care. Most recently, she practiced as a family nurse practitioner at the Children and Family Health Clinics in Merrillville and Munster.

A Nigerian-born Munster resident, Ibikunle-Salami said she wants to do the best for her profession. “My philosophy is to not only identify a gap where help is needed, but to be instrumental in filling that gap,” she adds. As with the nurse practitioner discipline in general, her care toward patients focuses on holistic wellness and prevention.

She received her Doctorate of Nursing Practice from Walden University; her Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner, from Indiana Wesleyan University; her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Indiana Wesleyan University; and diplomas in nursing and midwifery from the School of Nursing, Ogun State, Nigeria.
