Modern Healthcare's Excellence in Nursing awards program, in partnership with the School of Nursing's Lillian Carter Center for Global Health & Social Responsibility, will honor men and women with nursing backgrounds, leading nursing programs and initiatives that improve healthcare delivery.
Successful honorees will show exemplary leadership in advancing care through nursing as well as developing innovative programs to solve vexing patient-care problems. The range of activities might include high-tech or low-tech solutions, staff development, nurse coaching programs, nurse-led caregiver collaborations and other transformation-of-care practices.
The Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing is overhauling its admission process for the 2015-2016 recruitment cycle. Beginning in Fall 2015, prospective students can expect to see a streamlined application, faster admission decisions, and more opportunities to earn merit scholarships.
Due to increasing interest in careers in healthcare, admission to many nursing programs has become quite competitive. Associate Dean for Enrollment and Student Affairs David Smith has some insight into how candidates can make themselves stand out in the admissions process.
