Under Joslin's executive stewardship, the College has experienced substantial transformation which includes:  establishing the first capital campaign for the College with 100% of goal attained prior to completion of a new school campus, presiding over the construction and opening of a state-of-the-art healthcare college campus, realizing double digit growth in enrollments since 2003, and launching a 'virtual campus' offering certificate and graduate degrees online for healthcare professionals throughout North America.

Dr. Joslin is known for his visionary leadership, academic contributions and his community service.  In addition to his presidential oversight of NMC, Dr. Joslin serves on several regional and national healthcare, wellness and educational boards.
