Therese Richmond, PhD, CRNP, FAAN will receive the 2013 Trustees Council of Penn Women Award for Undergraduate Advising.
Dr. Richmond is known to instill in her students a sense of pride in the profession, confidence in scholarly ability, and a love for inquisitiveness and healthy criticism. She knows that the best way to support students is to help them achieve independence at the right moment and she provides an exceptional mentoring model for students to use throughout their careers, noted Dean Meleis in her announcement to the school.
Dr. Richmond is the principal investigator and director of the Hillman Scholars Program in Nursing Innovation, which fast tracks students from BSN to PhD programs.
Dr. Richmond will receive the award on Friday, May 10 at 4PM at the Faculty-Alumni Awards Ceremony.
