Jerilyn K. Allen, RN, ScD, FAAN, a leading researcher in cardio-vascular nursing and medicine, was installed as the M. Adelaide Nutting Professor in Nursing Research at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing on January 8. Elaine Larson, former Nutting Chair, was the guest speaker at the ceremony.

As the Nutting Professor, Allen’s role will be to bridge disciplines and foster transprofessional research collaborations among faculty and students within the Johns Hopkins schools of Nursing, Medicine, and Public Health, and with the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

The M. Adelaide Nutting endowed chair and professorship—the first nursing school chair in the nation to be funded through the contributions of an alumni association—was named for M. Adelaide Nutting, a pioneer in nursing education at Johns Hopkins and in the nation.
