• Two Nursing School faculty projects received funding in the fall from the School of Nursing Alumni Association’s Innovative Teaching Awards. Audrey Snyder and Arlene Keeling received funding to teach acute care nurse practitioner students to perform chest tube insertions and needle chest compressions in the classroom instead of a clinical setting. Beth White received funding to develop a program to address the shortage of intensive care clinicians by adding fourth-year nursing students to clinical rotations in the coronary care unit of the Heart Center.

Two awards were also announced for the spring cycle. Registered nurses Shelley Huffstutler and John Kirchgessner received funding to help primary care nursing students develop and implement community-based health care intervention projects designed to improve the health of an entire community. Registered nurse Carol Lynn Maxwell-Thompson received funding to train select students and faculty as CPR instructors.
