Nursing Professor’s Poem Forthcoming

School of Nursing faculty member, Rudy Clark, was accepted as one of only two nurses to the American Medical Student Associations’s (AMSA) national meeting in Sterling, Virginia, in late January. In order to be accepted, applicants submitted writing samples related to the association’s focus on narrative medicine and humanities to facilitate improved patient outcomes. Rudy’s poem, “Nurse,” merited her the coveted position among medical students and doctors at the conference, and her poem is forthcoming in the AMSA’s 2013 anthology.
