Lifetime Achievement
Class of 1983 PhD alumna Kristen
Swanson, PhD, RN, FAAN, is an
internationally known scholar and
theorist of Caring Science. She
is dean of the College of Nursing
at Seattle University and Chair of
the Board of Trustees of Swedish
Health System.
Her research focuses on caring,
responses to miscarriage, and interventions to promote healing
after early pregnancy loss. Swanson's caring theory has been
used to guide practice, education, and research in schools and
healthcare settings around the world. It evolved from her empirical
clinical research, which generated 5 caring processes inherent
in professional nursing practice: knowing, being with, doing for,
enabling, and maintaining belief.
Swanson previously served as Dean and Alumni Distinguished
Professor at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill School of
Nursing and Associate Chief Nursing Officer for Academic Affairs
at UNC Hospitals. She has been a visiting professor in the United
States, England, Thailand, Taiwan, Columbia, and Sweden. She is
an alumna of the Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellows
Program and CU Nursing. In 2020, Swanson was inducted into the
Washington State Nursing Association Hall of Fame in recognition of
her dedication to nursing and significant lifetime achievements.
