Wendy Bowles has been a nurse since 1994 and a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner since 1998. In addition to a fulfilling career as a nurse, she began her journey in nursing education in 2005 and realized the importance of educating future nurses for current practice environments. She is committed to advancing the science of evidence-based pedagogies of teaching and learning in nursing education. Her research includes extensive work with alternative pedagogies, curricular development, and student engagement. She has presented her work both nationally and internationally in the form of podium and poster presentations. She is currently receiving funding to implement a collaborative model for seamless academic progression between associate degree and RN to BSN programs in the State of Ohio. This model will serve as a resource for academic institutions both statewide and nationally and will assist in the efforts to meet the recommendation from the Institute of Medicine that 80% of nurses are baccalaureate prepared by 2020.

Memphis, TN – Early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease has been shown to reduce cost and improve patient outcomes, but current diagnostic approaches can be invasive and costly. A recent study, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, has found a novel way to identify a high potential for developing Alzheimer’s disease before symptoms occur. Ray Romano, PhD, RN, completed the research as part of his PhD in the Nursing Science Program at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) College of Graduate Health Sciences.
