Fulbright Scholarship Awarded to Sally Decker

Sally Decker, PhD, RN, CNE, CHSE, Professor of Nursing at Saginaw Valley State University was recently awarded a Fulbright Scholarship! Sally will teach and conduct research with the inter-professional team at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin Ireland in Spring 2019. She will be doing interactive simulation workshops with faculty members and creating inter-professional simulations with students and faculty members.

Sally became interested in the inter-professional practice and the importance of culture to that practice when she was a member of the Army Nurse Corps. As a faculty member at Saginaw Valley State University, she has had the opportunity to work with inter-professional teams using simulation as a learning platform. She hopes to share some of what she has learned as well as bring back new perspectives.

The Fulbright Program aims to increase mutual understanding between the people of the US and other countries. The Fulbright Program of international exchange has been supported through appropriations from the US Congress and partner nations for over 50 years.

Sally is an active member of Region 4 and serves on the Public Policy Council and Nominations Committees.
