He clinically instructs senior nursing students at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center on the Acute Surgical/Trauma Inpatient Unit. Professor Anderson is a Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse, by the Academy of Medical Surgical Nurses, and an active member of the American Assembly for Men in Nursing. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the AAMN and is a Luther Christman Fellow.  Author of several books including his most recent effort, “The Staff Nurse Survival Guide- 2006”, he created the W-Assessment system of patient evaluation (along with seven of his recent graduates), which organizes the assessment and management of acutely ill surgical patients.
Dr. Anderson is nationally known for his work with the NCLEX-RN examination and is president of Test Preparation Specialists, Inc.™ This company presents reviews for new graduates prior to sitting for their Registered Nurse licensure examination.

His current research interest is in the area of identifying images of men in nursing. He presented his most recent findings at the October 2007 AAMN national conference in Philadelphia at the University of Pennsylvania.  His work extends to visual images of nursing, in general, and he is working to create a Center for Nurse Recognition® which will act as a clearing house of images that enhance the nursing image.
