Nursing professor Lisa Hopp recently was inducted into the American Academy of Nursing. The 1,800 Fellows of the Academy are considered among the most accomplished leaders in nursing-related education, management, practice and research. They serve the public and nursing profession by advancing health policy and practice.

Hopp was honored for her scholarship and leadership related to evidence- based nursing practice.

Nursing program benefits from efforts

The longtime faculty member played a key role in developing and advancing the Indiana Center for Evidence-Based Nursing Practice, housed in Purdue Calumet’s school of Nursing.

The Center is part of a global cooperative effort intended to expand understanding and use of research-based evidence to produce best patient outcomes.

Nursing school is proud of one of their own

All of the faculty and staff take great delight in that Hopp received this very well- deserved recognition, according to Peggy Gerard, Dean of the Purdue Calumet School of Nursing.

“Dr. Hopp’s work in evidence-based nursing practice has had local, national and international impact on nursing practice and patient outcomes. She was instrumental in the creation of the Indiana Center for Evidence Based Nursing Practice, a collaborating Center of the Joanna Briggs Institute,” she said. “The Center, coupled with Dr. Hopp’s scholarship in evidence-based practice has made a significant positive impact on our School of Nursing, curriculum and faculty.”
