She is director of the PhD Program at Villanova's College of Nursing.
This award recognizes the outstanding contributions of 100 of Indiana's more than 30,000 living alumni. The awardees demonstrate exceptional contributions to nursing through education, clinical practice, leadership, and/or research. The breadth and depth of their contributions were considered in conjunction with the types and years that their degrees were awarded. A competitive submission and review process was used to select 100 extraordinary alumni for this award.
Dr. Sharts-Hopko will be honored on June 21, 2014 as part of her alma mater's 100th Anniversary Celebration Weekend.
