Nichole Taylor, a UW Doctor of Nursing Practice graduate elect from Gillette, Wyoming, has been selected to deliver the Nursing Convocation 2018 message this year at the ceremony to be held Friday, May 11, 2018 in the A&S Auditorium on the University of Wyoming campus from 2-4 p.m.

Selection as Speaker

Taylor graduates as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner from the DNP Program this year. She was selected to speak “because of her passion for nursing, especially psychiatric mental health nursing, and her willingness to advocate for her clients,” says Nursing Dean Mary Burman. Dr. Ann Marie Hart, DNP Program Director, adds: “In addition, Nichole was chosen for this honor due to her interest and leadership in increasing access to mental health care in rural and underserved communities.”

Speech focus

Taylor says her speech will focus on creating positive change while enduring the current challenges of healthcare. “What we aspire to do [as nurses in the current healthcare climate] will require resilience to keep our passion to promote change for our patients and overall healthcare.”

About Taylor

Taylor was named as one of two Jonas Nurse Leader Scholars from UW during the course of her DNP program. Included in the honor was participation in an online leadership series where she connected with other scholars across the country, culminating in an in-person national meeting in Washington, D.C. last fall, gaining exposure to national nursing leaders from across the country and an opportunity to talk with legislators.
