Dr. Annette Hines has been a practicing nurse and/or nurse educator since graduation from 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 also published on nursing education topics and clinical practice, including: asthma as a health disparity, electronic charting, and folic acid supplementation and education. 

While attending East Carolina University, she also worked as a staff nurse at Pitt Memorial Hospital and as a research assistant for their School of Medicine. Upon completion of the M.S.N. degree with an emphasis in adult health and education, Dr. 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, Dr. Hines returned to the field and has been on faculty with Queens since 2000, first as adjunct faculty from 2000 to 2002, and as full-time faculty from 2003 to the present. She was a recipient of the student-nominated, university-level Joseph W. Grier Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2007. She has served as chair of graduate studies in nursing for the Presbyternian School of Nursing since January 2014 and earned tenure in fall of the same year.
