“What I spent my time at shepherd preparing for”
Dr. Karis Nolen, who graduated in May with a doctor of nursing practice degree, accepted a new position at the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy at the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). When sharing the news with Dr. Sharon Mailey, Dr. Nolen said, “This is exactly what I spent my time at Shepherd preparing for.” Dr. Nolen will be working in the HRSA’s policy and research division, focusing on Covid vaccine confidence in rural areas. Dr. Mailey credits the support of Dr. Marcia Brand, former Board of Governors chair, who funds two internships for students focusing on rural health policy. Dr. Mailey shared that Dr. Nolen is the perfect candidate for the HRSA position, adding, “and, of course, we need more nurse leaders and Shepherd graduates at the policy table.” Congratulations, Dr. Nolen, and thank you, Dr. Brand, for your unwavering support of Shepherd and its students.
