Heather Hall

“The International Nursing Research Congress gave the University of South Alabama a platform to showcase our University, College of Nursing, programs, faculty, and students. The setting was perfect to begin a conversation with faculty and nurses from other universities and health care settings for collaboration on research and scholarship. STTI is passionate about bringing nurses together to promote research, education, practice, and ultimately improving health care outcomes.”

— Heather R. Hall, PhD, RNC, NNP-BC, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor, USA College of Nursing
