In the Spotlight


Advanced practice nurses Liezl DiDonato, Chuck Rowland, Sung Whang, Sophie Mintz, Lori Pelligrino, Dana Ovadia, Theresa Yeo, Ling Fan, Linda Martino, and Shawnna Cannady.

In September, 10 advanced practice nurses from the Department of Surgery gathered for a lunchtime kick-off meeting to form a Nurse Practitioners (NPs) & Physician Assistants (PAs) Professionalism and Scholarship Working Group. This initiative is an important career development component and has been meeting on a monthly basis to discuss issues in clinical practice, explore potential clinical research projects, foster CV development, and address professional practice concerns. Thus far, two projects have been submitted for small grant consideration, several presentations have been developed and two members are collaborating on publishing an online continuing education module for NPs. All Department of Surgery NPs and PAs are invited. Please contact: theresa.yeo@jefferson.edu.
