NLN Chief Program Officer

There is an immediate need to transform nursing education to better prepare students to advance the health of the nation’s vulnerable populations. Through this center, NLN creates evidence-based teaching resources for nurse educators to incorporate evolving knowledge about individuals, families, and communities who face barriers to fully access health care. Center resources provide innovative solutions on how nurses working in an interprofessional environment can meet special needs of older adults, veterans, Alzheimer’s patients family caregivers and children in community settings who experience challenges with obesity, mental health and oral care.
