KSN is pleased to announce with great pride that Dr. Lois Salmeron, Associate Dean of Kramer School of Nursing, has been appointed to the Board of Trustees of Mercy Health Center. She was nominated by a longtime friend of hers and a member of our KSN Executive Board, cardiologist Dr. Jim Hartsuck. Mercy is one of only two Magnet hospitals in the Oklahoma City area, and was the first in the state to receive this distinction. Dr. Salmeron is a noted, long standing member of the states health care community, who has also received such distinctions as induction into the Oklahoma Higher Education Hall of Fame and into the Academy of Nursing Education as a Fellow. Her achievements and service are valuable to Kramer School of Nursing and Oklahoma City University, as we strive together to improve the health of all Oklahomans. Congratulations to Dr. Salmeron on this important, prestigious appointment.
