Dr. Redman has been part of the School of Nursing since 1988, when he joined the University of Michigan to develop a graduate program in nursing administration.
In 2010, after several years of extensive planning by the School of Nursing, he helped launch the Doctor of Nursing Practice Program. In planning the program, Dr. Redman and School of Nursing faculty carefully envisioned how a University of Michigan DNP program would help prepare leaders.
“There is a need for clinicians who have the ability to link science and research evidence with preferred outcomes in patient care,” Dr. Redman said. “Our graduate students have the opportunity to learn with highly recognized leaders and researchers – the very individuals who are generating the science that they’re going to be translating into evidence.”
Dr. Redman has observed that U-M nursing students are especially passionate about their profession and the populations they serve. “They see the need for change in the health care system and have a goal to make a difference. We anticipate that our graduates are going to lead the efforts to address the pressing problems facing our healthcare system.”
