Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Nursing Leadership Exchange. As another academic year is well underway, we here at Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) are hard at work bringing to life our vision of "Together transforming the future of nursing, to advance health with individuals, families and communities."
In this edition, we will share with you four examples of how we are doing just that.
I invite you to learn how:
- We have launched our first cohort of our "Emerging Leaders Program," which identifies talented staff and helps develop their personal and organizational leadership skills. (Read more)
- Nursing students from around the world joined some of our ABSN students here at Duke for our inaugural two-week course on "Exploring Patterns of Global Health and Illness." (Read more)
- In just the past six months, our Center for Nursing Research has earned more than $17 million in extramural research funding. (Read more)
- Dr. Kathryn Evans Kreider received a HRSA grant that allowed the School to offer the first adult endocrinology specialty for nurse practitioners in the United States. (Read more)
I am so proud of the work our faculty, staff and students are involved in that will allow us to continue building a center of excellence for the advancement of nursing science, the promotion of clinical scholarship and the education of clinical leaders, advanced practitioners and researchers. I also invite you to share this newsletter with your colleagues, faculty, staff and students.
