Face to Face: Changing Health Care Needs and a Changing Nursing Workforce

Thu Dec 7, 2023
On this episode of Virtual Face to Face, UMB President Bruce E. Jarrell, MD, FACS, will sit down with the Bill and Joanne Conway Dean of the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON), Yolanda Ogbolu, PhD ’11, NNP, FNAP, FAAN. In her fifth month as dean, Ogbolu lays out plans to meet the health care needs of Marylanders with innovations in nursing education and a focus on reducing health care disparities. She will discuss: • What does the future of nursing look like in the community, in people’s homes, and with a reduced use of hospitals for primary care? • How do we overcome generational and cultural challenges, using continuing education, to provide gender-affirming care and develop a workforce that looks like the communities it serves? • And how can we employ new methods of preparing tomorrow’s nurses with residency and retention programs? Ogbolu will also discuss her personal relationship with Baltimore and the ideas she’s brought home from research abroad.
