Judith Karshmer, USF dean of nursing and health professions, has been elected to represent nurse scholars from across the state on the Association of California Nurse Leaders (ACNL) board.

Advancing care & public health

Karshmer will help guide the development of nurse leaders and advocate for California health care system improvements as a member of the nonprofit board.

“I’m excited to be a part of this nursing leadership organization that can truly help position nurses to advance health care,” Karshmer said.
