College of Nursing Names 2008 Distinguished Alumni

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The University of New Mexico College of Nursing (UNM CON) has selected Dr. Alyce Schultz to receive the 2008 Distinguished Alumni Award.

Schultz earned her bachelor of science in nursing degree from UNM in 1980 and her master of science in nursing in 1983. In 1990, she completed her doctorate in nursing at Oregon Health & Science University.

Schultz’s nursing career has focused on nursing research and evidence-based nursing practice. She began her career as a nurse researcher at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine and for 12 years, served as their director of the Center for Nursing Research and Quality Outcomes.

Schultz has recently retired as the associate director of the Center for Advancement of Evidence-Based Practice and clinical professor at Arizona State University. She has since formed her own consulting company for evidence-based practice and clinical research at the bedside, Alyce A. Schultz & Associates, LLC.

As a nationally recognized nurse researcher, Schultz has shared her knowledge with nursing students as a nurse mentor and educator. She has promoted evidence-based practice and has guided fellow clinicians to conduct research geared for daily practice.

The UNM CON is a fully accredited component of the UNM Health Sciences Center. With over 50 years of service, the UNM CON has been a vital resource to the state of New Mexico. The College offers a full range of superior programs in traditional areas while addressing the special needs of highly diverse populations with thoughtfully designed programs to make nursing education available to everyone in the state.
