Annette Hines is a recent graduate of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She has been a practicing nurse and/or nurse educator since graduation from the Bachelor of Science in nursing program at Duke University in 1984. She earned a master of science in nursing degree from East Carolina University in 1990. Findings from her thesis, "The Effects of the Presence of a Spouse on the Stroke Rehabilitation Patient’s Adaptation," were published in "The Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing." She has published on the topic, asthma as a health disparity, in The Journal of Pediatric Nursing.

While attending ECU, Hines also worked as a staff nurse at Pitt Memorial Hospital and as a research assistant for ECU’s School of Medicine, recruiting participants for studies, and collecting data through interview and physical assessment. Upon completion of the MSN degree with an emphasis in adult health and education, Hines went to work as a nurse educator in North Carolina's community college system. After teaching at Robeson Community College, she briefly left nursing education and practiced as a family nurse practitioner in North Carolina and South Carolina from 1995 to1999.

Realizing that nursing education is her passion, Hines returned to the field, and has been on faculty with Queens University of Charlotte since 2000, first as adjunct faculty from 2000 to 2004, and as full-time faculty from 2004 to the present. During her time at Queens, she has been promoted from instructor to assistant professor. She served as the Assistant Dean for The Presbyterian School of Nursing at Queens for three years. She was the winner of the student-nominated, university-level Joseph W. Grier Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2007.

Research interests include health promotion in families with a child with chronic illness, asthma as a health disparity, and active learning strategies for nursing students.
