Congratulations to Diane Todd Pace on being inducted into the .American Academy of Nursing October 7 in Washington, DC.

Anne Alexandrov has submitted a $2.5 million grant proposal to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) titled ZerO Degree head positioning In Acute ischemiC stroke (ZODIAC).

The grant proposes a randomized controlled PROBE design trial of head positioning to determine if 0 degree-head of bed positioning during the early hyperacute phase of large artery ischemic stroke prevents neurological symptom worsening. A novel protocol will be employed that can be executed within current standard of care requirements for rapid thrombectomy treatment with or without clot-busting medications (n=182).


Carolyn Graff has submitted a grant proposal to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) for the Future of Nursing Scholars Program.

The goal of the RWJF Future of Nursing Scholars Program is to develop the next generation of PhD-prepared nurse leaders who are committed to long-term careers that advance science and discovery, strengthen nursing education, and bring transformational change to nursing and health care.If funded, this grant will provide two PhD students with a significant amount of funds to cover tuition, fees, living expenses, research activities, programmatic activities, and other expenses. 100% of the grant money goes to PhD students.

Dr. Sara Day has submitted a grant proposal for the 2017 Tennessee Promise of Nursing Grant Program administered by the Foundation of the National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA) and the Tennessee Hospital Association (THA).
Her grant proposal titled Education and Simulation Training to Prevent and Manage Aggressive Patient Situations focuses on a creative approach and innovative partnership between the UTHSC College of Nursing, Center for Community Partnerships and Nursing Innovation and Regional One Health, Department of Nursing.

 The purpose of this project is to implement and evaluate classroom education and simulation to teach new graduates, experienced nurses and nursing students verbal de-escalation to curtail potentially violent situations.

Funding of this project will equip 600 nurses and 100 nursing students with knowledge to recognize escalating behavior and the skills to de-escalate potentially hostile situations.
