Please join the College of Nursing for our Inaugural Nursing Leadership Lecture Series title: Health Care, Education & Stakeholders: Views from Diverse Nurse Leaders. Each semester the CON will invite Nurse Leaders to share their perspective on issues that impact the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities as well as support our vision of reducing the social determinants of health and improve health equity for all. The CON Nursing Leadership lecture is open to PVAMU CON students, staff, faculty, alumni and preceptors, the larger PVAMU community as well as members of the Texas Medical Center Community and those practitioners and scholars unaffiliated with PVAMU.
