Lisa Hopp, Ph.D., RN, FAAN
Dean & Professor, College of Nursing
Director, Indiana Center for Evidence Based Nursing Practice
As dean of the College of Nursing, my role is to bring a vision for advancing nursing practice and to facilitate, support and ensure resources for faculty and staff to realize this shared vision.
I have had two areas of research. First, I worked with patients and health people to determine respiratory muscle function and was funded for projects from the National Institutes of Health. More recently, my research and scholarship has focused on how to move research into clinical practice. In other words, how to do nursing practice “right” using the evidence, expertise and patient preferences.
I have aspirations to write a series of children's' books when I retire that tell the stories of the excitement and authentic image of nursing. I grew up in a small town in Iowa and still appreciate the lessons learned, my work ethic and sense of community from my first 18 years.
