In this age of substantial economic pressures, continued growth of the health care industry, and increasing complexity of care, it is paramount that nursing considers the utilization and education of the workforce. Nursing represents the largest group of health care professionals and change can be difficult to achieve. How will we leverage education to meet these challenges?
The Kirkhof College of Nursing and the Bonnie Wesorick Center for Health Care Transformation invites you to engage with us for a presentation and question and answer period with Lisa Osborne, PhD, CRNA, CAPT, NC, USN. Dr. Osborne will address implications for nursing education and the impact on health systems and the delivery of health care.
Dr. Osborne has served as an educator and provider of care in the US Navy for over 20 years. She has served in and out of combat as a certified nurse anesthetist as well as a commander. Her area of research is outcomes in regional anesthesia for pain management. She authored several publications and is a leading expert in her field, now holding a faculty appointment as an Associate Professor of Nursing at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland.
Representatives from Kirkhof College of Nursing, Grand Valley State University's Veterans Network, the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs OEF/OIF and Women's Programs, and military branches will be hosting tables following the lecture.
