Networking with Nurse Leaders
Students in the School of Nursing have the opportunity to interact with leaders in the profession at special events held on campus throughout the year.
In March 2012, Angela Barron McBride, a distinguished professor and university dean emerita at the Indiana University School of Nursing and chair of the National Advisory Committee of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Nurse Faculty Scholars Program, presented the lecture, "Orchestrating a Career For Leadership."
McBride is known for her contributions to women's health and to psychiatric-mental health nursing, has contributed to more than 50 books, published numerous articles, and has served on the boards of a number of professional journals and annuals. McBride's lifelong commitment to mentor future leaders in nursing is embodied in her latest book, "The Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders."
In 2006, the American Academy of Nursing named McBride a living legend, an honor bestowed to fellows who have been extraordinary role models and who have had a profound influence on the profession.
