Andrea Norberg, DNP, MS, RN
Executive Director, François-Xavier Bagnoud Center
Division of Entry to Baccalaureate Nursing
Drawing on her 30 years of experience in nursing, the majority of which has been spent in leadership roles across public and private health care organizations, Dr. Andrea Norberg serves as the executive director of the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center (FXB Center) at Rutgers School of Nursing. She is also the principal investigator of the AIDS Education and Training Center National Coordinating Resource Center (AETC NCRC); the principal investigator of the northern NJ regional AETC, a regional partner of the Northeast Caribbean AETC; and the principal investigator of the NJ Department of Health’s education and training of providers in HIV care initiative. From 2013-2018, she served as editor of “New Jersey HIV Links,” a semiannual publication targeted to New Jersey’s HIV clinical providers.
Between 1985 and 2002, Dr. Norberg held both clinical nursing and leadership roles throughout the United States, including in-patient pediatric cardiology, intensive care, and adolescent care, a county health department, a Big Four management consulting firm, and a medical school.
She joined the FXB Center in 2002 as the director of administration and finance and became the director of national programs in 2005 and the executive director of the FXB Center in 2008. As executive director, Dr. Norberg leads the $40 million grant-funded center committed to improving the health of vulnerable populations through research, education, and translation of evidence-based findings into practice across programs locally, nationally, and globally. In addition to her hands-on role in developing new programs to achieve the center’s mission, Dr. Norberg’s duties include cultivating external relationships to support the center’s activities, promoting its global identity, and maintaining strong relationships with public funders and private donors.
Dr. Norberg’s research is focused on understanding the experiences of HIV-infected adults and their health care providers with health care delivery structures, programmatic processes, and provider practices that influence engagement in primary health care in the U.S. and globally. Dr. Norberg’s interest in this research area grew from her experience as the principal investigator of the HIV-Medical Homes National Resource Center, a HRSA-HIV/AIDS Bureau-funded cooperative agreement awarded from 2011-2014. In this role, she gained a deep understanding of transformational health care models and the patient-centered medical home.
Dr. Norberg earned her doctorate in nursing practice from Rutgers University, her master’s degree in community health nursing from the University of Rochester, and her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
