FEATURED NURSE EDUCATORS from the Institute for Educators Conference

  • SUSAN BOYER, MEd, RN, FAHCEP, Executive Director of VNIP (Vermont Nurses In Partnership), an organization dedicated to supporting nurse development.  Her organization has initiated a movement to provide curriculum for and regulate nursing preceptorships.  She gave a very energetic lecture–at the Institute for Educators on March 11, 2010.  Check out her website at www.vnip.org!
  • DEBRA WEBSTER, EdD, MS, RNBC, of SALISBURY UNIVERSITY, Salisbury, MD.  She was a Poster Presenter on ‘Addressing Academic Uncivility in Nursing Education’. She can be reached at dawebster@salisbury.edu
  • TRACY BARR, BSN, RN, CEN, TRACY KOSTELEC, BSN, RN, CEN and Monica Nelson at Mercy Medical Center, who were Poster Presenters on ‘Writer’s Block: Improving Nurses’ Professional Writing Skills’.  Their In-House Workshops educated the Mercy Medical Center nurses on Basics, Getting Published, Grant Writing!  20% of their attendees have gotten published!!  This is something I’m very interested in.  I want to become (more) published and learn how to write grants!  Tracy Kostelec can be contacted for more information at tminard@md.mercy.com

It was also a pleasure meeting Julie Cook, MSN/MPH, RN, PHCNS, who works with the Programs of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) at the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS)
