Then applaud for UVA School of Nursing's nurse historian Arlene Keeling, whose book - A HISTORY OF PROFESSIONAL NURSING - just earned a "Book of the Year" award from the American Journal of Nursing.
#CNL graduates like Carl Lambert go on to change the world ... and they inspire nascent nurses as preceptors, too, as models and exemplars of the nursing profession at its best.
Proud of you, Lambert, for your compassion, poise and endless good humor, and grateful to call you one of our own.
Last week, the CCI Team welcomed Martha A. Burton and members of her family to a small reception and official "unveiling" of the artwork she donated to our collection - "Medicine Leaves", 2017, by Louise Numina Nepanangka (b. 1976), Australian.
The painting provided a beautiful backdrop, as CCI Director Tim Cunningham (left) and SON Dean Dorrie Fontaine (right) presented the placard to Martha Burton (center). The piece is located on the 2nd floor of McLeod Hall - come check it out, you can't miss it!
