Posted: 12/7/2005

Sally Sample, a 1954 Hopkins nursing graduate, received the Distinguished Alumnus award from Dr. William Brody for a life of nursing service and leadership. Sample was a pioneer in the evolution of the joint-appointment clinical nurse specialist role, the creation of the Center for Nursing collaborative model, and the initiation of a Vermont statewide continuing education effort for nurses. Now retired, she was recently named a “Living Legend” by the American Academy of Nursing.

Established in 1978, the Distinguished Alumnus Award honors alumni who have typified the Johns Hopkins tradition of excellence and brought credit to the University by their personal accomplishment, professional achievement, or humanitarian service.
