Assistant professor named UMSON Dean’s Scholarship Scholar.
Veronica "Ronnie" Quattrini, DNP, MS '99, BSN '85, FNP-BC, assistant professor and senior director of the Doctor of Nursing Practice program, has been named a 2022 Dean’s Scholarship Scholar (DSS).
The DSS program is designed to provide focused time and mentorship for individuals who desire to increase their concentration on the research/scholarship component of the mission by enhancing their writing and publication skills with the ultimate goal of publishing in peer-reviewed journals or writing chapters in textbooks.
The DSS program provides one semester/six months of protected time and editorial resources to awardees. Typical activities might include submitting abstracts and manuscripts of quality improvement initiatives or state-of-the-art clinical topics or research findings and participating in writing accountability groups. Appointment as a scholar is a competitive process for early- to mid-career (assistant or associate professor) faculty members.
