NEW ASSOCIATE DEAN OF ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
SAYS POSSIBILITIES FOR CU COLLEGE OF NURSING
ARE ENDLESS
By Deborah Sherman
While any new job can be stressful, Dr. Kelly Stamp has
taken on the challenge of leading academic programs at the
University of Colorado College of Nursing during an ongoing
pandemic, a nursing shortage and a changing profession. And
the new associate professor with tenure and associate dean
of academic programs is up for the challenge.
" This is a time for doing a lot of listening, understanding and
hearing different points of view about how things are currently
operating and desires for the department as we move
forward, " said Kelly Stamp, PhD, NP-C, RN, CHFN-K, FAHA,
FAAN. " My goal is to build a team-oriented department and
to innovate as much as possible for the faculty, students and
stakeholders whom I serve. The possibilities of where we can
go are endless. "
The Office of Academic Programs came under Stamp's direction
in September after she moved to Colorado from North
Carolina with her husband, three dogs and cat. She had been
the chair of Family and Community Nursing, an Eloise R.
Lewis Excellence Professor, and a professor with tenure at
the School of Nursing at the University of North Carolina
in Greensboro. Before that, she was an associate professor
with tenure and director of the Direct Master's Entry PreLicensure
Nursing program at the William F. Connell School
of Nursing at Boston College in Massachusetts.
Her many licenses, degrees and certifications include
a Certified Heart Failure Nurse and Advanced Practice
Registered Nurse as an Adult Nurse Practitioner.
" It's beautiful in Colorado, " said Stamp. " We love the landscape
and the ability to get outside. Plus, everyone has a dog! "
While she says it's too early to set specific goals for a department
that encompasses everything from undergraduate,
graduate and doctoral programs to the Experiential Learning
Team, Stamp does plan to offer more international experience
to the students and faculty. She's been traveling to
Switzerland since 2013 to teach global health nursing and established
an Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner program.
" In Switzerland, they have rural mountainous areas with
underserved populations where healthcare is not accessible.
I'm always looking to make the educational
experience better for students and faculty. I
love it. Nursing is for me. "
- Kelly Stamp, PhD, NP-C, RN, CHFN-K, FAHA, FAAN
For many years, I have met with key
stakeholders in Switzerland to educate
them how nursing practitioners can
provide primary care to people in remote
areas. The first nurse practitioner
program began in 2017 and I worked
with my international colleagues to
start the first adult-gerontology nurse
practitioner program in 2018 in Bern,
Switzerland. "
Switzerland had collaborated with
Boston College for a student and
faculty exchange during Stamp's time
there. Now, the country is interested
in collaborating with the University of
Colorado for a student exchange and
faculty model to help it further develop
the nursing practitioner role.
" It's been a great experience for students
and faculty in both countries.
I'm grateful for my international
colleagues. I think we learn from each
other, " Stamp said.
Stamp discovered her love for nursing
at the age of 15 in high school, as a
volunteer candy striper.
" I think we all have our calling, and
nursing was mine. It is the best profession!
My career has taken many twists
and turns, early on I loved being an
intensive care nurse, especially taking
care of patients. Then being able to
teach other nurses in intensive care
led me to want to earn my graduate
and doctoral degrees and build a career
in academia. "
Now, that focus and hard work have led
Stamp to the University of Colorado
College of Nursing on the Anschutz
Medical Campus to take on her biggest
challenge yet during a difficult time.
" I'm always looking to make the educational
experience better for students
and faculty. I love it. Nursing is for me.
It's been an awesome ride. Looking
back, I would not change a thing. "
