She is also the primary coordinator for the pharmacology coursework.

Currently, she is the course director of ‘Anesthesia Pharmacology,’ ‘Advanced Pharmacology,’ ‘Evidence-Based Research Methods,’ and the three-part ‘Clinical Research Seminar.’ Additionally, she is the Course Director of ‘Fundamentals of Pharmacology’ for the Georgetown University undergraduate BSN program.

Her excellence in teaching has been recognized by a ‘Faculty Achievement in Education Award’ at Georgetown University Medical Center Convocation in 2015 and an ‘Innovation in Teaching Award’ at Georgetown University Department of Nursing in 2007.

Dr. Bowman Dalley received her BSN at the University of Washington and MS in Nurse Anesthesia from Georgetown University. In 2017, she earned her PhD in Pharmacology with a research focus on “The Role of Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 1 in Glioma Cell Line Viability.”Dr. Bowman Dalley practices as a CRNA at Georgetown University Hospital where she provides expert anesthesia care to a variety of sub-specialties and is a preceptor to nurse anesthesia students. 

In addition to her service in the DNAP program, Dr. Bowman Dalley also volunteers as a Section Editor for the International Student Journal of Nurse Anesthesiaand has developed the content for the NBCRNA Applied Clinical Pharmacology CPC Module.
