University of Rhode Island Graduates Its First Class of Acute Care Nurse Practitioners

The University of Rhode Island has had a nurse practitioner degree program since 1975. But the university has now graduated its first class in its post master’s acute care nurse practitioner certificate program. The four women in the program had previously completed master’s degree programs in nursing but returned to school for training in acute care which qualifies them to practice in emergency and clinical care.

The four women who are the first to complete the program are Debora Durkin, Kathleen Fava, Jennifer Ann Thiesen, and Leigh Whoriskey.
