Learning from Leaders

Top Nurses Share Knowledge with Hopkins Students

Dr. Patricia Grady, Director of the National Institute of Nursing Research, told students: “Think about where you can put your intellect, your experience, and your leadership to work. Start early; it increases your options.”

Top-notch U.S. nurses are sharing their knowledge, insights, and wisdom with the nurses of tomorrow through a speaker series for students in the New Careers in Nursing leadership program. The program, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, benefits students from groups underrepresented in nursing who demonstrate significant financial need.

Presenters include:

  • Patricia Grady, PhD, RN, Director of the National Institute of Nursing Research
  • Karen Haller, PhD, RN, Vice President for Nursing and Patient Care at The Johns Hopkins Hospital
  • Leslie Mancuso, PhD, RN, President and CEO of Jhpiego, an inter-national non-profit health organization affiliated with The Johns Hopkins University
  • Ellen Marie Whelan, PhD, NP, a Senior Health Policy Analyst and Associate Director of Health Policy at the Center for American Progress
