In 2016, Dr. Karen Haller, esteemed vice president for nursing and patient care services and chief nursing officer at The Johns Hopkins Hospital for the last 17 years, assumed a new role as the vice president of nursing and clinical affairs for Johns Hopkins Medicine International.
Dr. Haller’s greatest legacy is her commitment to and advancement of patient-centered care, long before it became a common phrase. To honor this commitment, the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing has established the Karen B. Haller Endowed Scholarship Fund in patient-centered care. Each year an award will be made to a Johns Hopkins School of Nursing student in the MSN: Entry into Nursing program who has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to patient-centered care.
This scholarship represents a calling to Hopkins health care professionals to fortify the position that exceptional nurses are desperately needed as we reform the health care system to be more accessible and flexible to meet patients’ needs.
