Niehoff Faculty Member Accepted to Illinois Nursing Leader Fellowship Program

Molly Hewitt, MSN, APN, has been accepted into the founding class of the Illinois Nursing Leader Fellowship Program. This program is designed to bring together nurse professionals from diverse practices and educational environments to build leadership competencies and skills for the profession.
