Alexander Wolf, ,CCRNUniversity of Virginia DNP
I have been a registered nurse since graduating with my BSN from the Loretto Heights School of Nursing at Regis University in 2010. In three years of clinical practice as a registered nurse in the Medical Intensive Care Unit at Denver Health, I founded the hospital’s ICU Delirium Journal Club and worked on several quality improvement team projects, including the development of the hospital’s “Sepsis Alert” protocol in 2013. In the fall of 2013, I began graduate study in the dual-track BSN-DNP program for Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Nurse Specialist at the University of Virginia. In addition to facilitating rapid response simulations for medical and nursing students, I am collaborating with fellow nursing and medical students in developing a student-run free clinic to provide urgent care services and health coaching to underserved members of the Charlottesville community. Additionally, I serve as a leader of the HeArt of Medicine initiative, an inter-professional project that fosters an art-focused exploration and discussion of end-of-life topics between medical and nursing students. My clinical interests include palliative care, cognitive impairment, and geriatric health promotion.
