Making an Impact
Every day, every hour, Vanderbilt nurses make an impact. They do so in patient care, helping patients and families and collaborating with colleagues and co-workers. They do so in education, imparting knowledge to the next generation of nurses and advanced practice nurses and academic leaders, then sharing best practices with fellow educators all over the globe. They do so in research, as nurse scientists identifying challenges and developing solutions that will help patients and populations. Vanderbilt nurses impact people, processes, systems and society. The following pages represent select accomplishments in the academic and scientific arenas from the past year.
