Assistant professor Lisa Carter-Harris has recently been competitively selected to receive the Midwest Nursing Research Society (MNRS) Decision Making Research Interest Group’s 2016 Emerging Scholar Award.

In November, 2015, PhD Student Mitch Knisely attended the Institute of Medicine's Roundtable on Translating Genomic-Based Research for Health: “Applying an Implementation Science Approach to Genomic Medicine: A Workshop” in Washington, DC. The goal of the workshop was to evaluate the integration of genomic medicine into health care with the assurance that the needs of institutions, providers, and patients are acknowledged. Mitch noted that listening to the thought-leaders in genomic medicine was a rewarding experience.
DNP student Emily Sego has received a scholarship from the Indiana Organization of Nurse Executives (IONE). The scholarship is funded through contributions to IONE’s nursing license plate fund. When members purchase Indiana nursing license plates through IONE, their payment contributes to that fund, and each year some of that money is awarded as scholarships to students who are pursuing an advanced degree in nursing administration or leadership.
