First School of Nursing Porter award given

Sherri Ulbrich, assistant professor at the Sinclair School of Nursing, was named this past summer as the Dr. Rosemary T. Porter Faculty Scholar, which honors Dean Emerita Rosemary T. Porter. She spent 29 years at the school as a faculty member, associate dean and dean, retiring in 2008.

“Sherri is an excellent role model for clinical decision-making, has a vast knowledge base related to the theory and practice of nursing, and teaches students to use evidence and know about best practices in caring for patients,” said School of Nursing Dean Judith Miller.

The $100,000 endowment, which became fully funded last spring after a five-year campaign, is the result of nearly 200 donations. Ulbrich will receive the Porter award for the next three years.
