VUMC’s Hoy lands transplant provider awardFeb. 14, 2013, 8:51 AM
Haley Hoy, Ph.D., ACNP, recently received the 2013 Advanced Transplant Provider Award from the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) during its Winter Symposium.
The award recognizes Hoy’s time and effort in advancing clinical practice through translation of scientific information, development of standards and clinical mentoring.
Hoy, a lung transplant coordinator and acute care nurse practitioner at Vanderbilt University Medical Center for more than a decade, was nominated for her contributions in the transplant community and her dedication to the field of transplantation.
“Haley started the first nurse practitioner run wait-listed clinic in lung transplantation at Vanderbilt,” her nomination form reads.
“In collaboration with her administrator, she started an annual clinical management symposium to bring multidisciplinary, evidence-based education to nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists and social workers across the country.”
This is the third year that ASTS has presented the award, which Hoy accepted on behalf of her supportive team of colleagues at the Vanderbilt Transplant Center.
Hoy also teaches a transplantation elective at the University of Alabama, Huntsville, where she serves as the interim associate dean for Graduate Programs at the UAHuntsville College of Nursing.
As part of her continued committee work with the North American Transplant Coordinators Organization (NATCO), she played an integral role in the development and publication of Advanced Transplant Competencies, which were adopted and widely circulated among the transplant community.
“She has always been a visionary, innovator and leader in Advanced Practice Nursing,” said Ed Zavala, MBA, administrator for the Vanderbilt Transplant Center. “Haley’s recognition is an incredible honor and richly deserved.”
