Vanderbilt University School of Nursing doctoral students recently recognized Mary Dietrich, PhD, and Karen Hande, DNP, ANP-BC, with the school’s student-voted Dean Colleen Conway-Welch faculty awards.

Mary Dietrich, PhD

The annual awards recognize faculty in the DNP and PhD programs who make significant contributions to student learning in their courses and/or who encourage students as advisers or mentors.

Dietrich, professor of Statistics/Measurement, was named the 2017 PhD faculty award recipient. She teaches research design and statistics and supports PhD students with their dissertation research.

Karen Hande, DNP, ANP-BC

Hande, associate professor of Nursing, was selected to receive the DNP program faculty award. She teaches the application of evidence-based practice and the execution of students’ DNP projects, which demonstrate the synthesis of students’ doctoral education scholarship. Hande coordinates the program’s integrative application course series, a sequence of courses designed to advance the students into practicing scholars.
