DNP Student Ellen Harvey Selected as Rising Star of Scholarship and Research

Nurse Practitioner graduate student Ellen Harvey was recently selected as the RU representative for the Sigma Theta Tau International Rising Stars of Scholarship and Research.

She will attend the 2011 Sigma Theta Tau Biennial Convention in Grapevine, Texas, this fall and present her research findings as part of the invited poster session.

“The School of Nursing is pleased that Ellen will represent the School of Nursing as our Rising Star of Scholarship and Research.  Ellen is an exceptional scholar, and her cutting edge research promises to make significant contributions to nursing and patient care, says School of Nursing Director Kim Carter. “While at the convention, Ellen will have the opportunity to meet with nursing colleagues from throughout the world, while also presenting her work at an invited poster session.”

Harvey was among a group of authors who recently published “The Impact of a Structured Education and Simulation Program on Failure to Rescue, Nurse Self-Confidence, and Knowledge in a Progressive Care Setting” in the November issue of Clinical Informatics in Nursing. The article is a “review of lessons learned in the post-implementation evaluation of a bar-code medication administration technology implemented at a major tertiary-care hospital in 2001,” Harvey said.
