Ambassador Spotlight: Teri Hernandez

Teri H Hernandez, PhD, RN
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

What made you want to become an FNINR Ambassador?
The goals of the NINR are at the forefront of my values and the values of the CU College of Nursing; our shared ideals include improving the health of individuals and families, and developing the next generation of highly trained nurse scientists who will lead the future of health by generating knowledge focused on chronic conditions, symptoms, and palliative care. To move our mutual vision forward will require courage and thoughtful advocacy through education of government leaders and key stakeholders on the importance of our work, its impact, and the resources required to support its success. I wanted to serve as an ambassador to support forward movement of these shared visions.
