SON clinical instructor (and Assistant Professor in the Adams School of Dentistry) Ryan Lewis, MSN, RN, FNP-BC has been selected as a fellow for the Duke-Johnson & Johnson Nurse Leadership Program. The Duke-Johnson & Johnson Nurse Leadership Program, a 10-month experience, is a partnership between Duke University School of Medicine, Duke University School of Nursing and Johnson & Johnson. The program provides leadership development for advanced practice nurses and their team partners to develop and launch transformational health improvement initiatives within their organizations and communities. Selected fellows start the program in August 2020 and will participate in virtual leadership retreats, web-conferences, project mentoring circles, individual executive coaching sessions, and an array of other distance-based learning activities. The program will provide each fellow with the leadership and management skills required to effectively address the needs of their communities – especially those of vulnerable populations – and to become change agents within their practice settings and the evolving healthcare environment.

Congratulations, Ryan!
