February 14, 2017 6:09 pm

Congratulations to KaraLynn LaValley, MN, RN, who was recently featured in Johnson & Johnson’s piece, “4 Ways Johnson & Johnson Has Given Love to the Nurses Who Give Love Every Day.”

KaraLynn, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Future of Nursing Scholar at Johnson & Johnson, is pursuing research in the field of child and adolescent development. She is specifically interested in the impact of adverse childhood experiences on neurologic, biophysical and psychosocial development. Her previous research has included assessing the attitudes, perceived knowledge and risk behaviors of HIV/AIDS among college students, ages 18-29 and the implications for planning population based interventions.

The Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future is celebrating its 15-year anniversary.  With this article, the campaign highlights nurses (like KaraLynn) who have benefited from the initiative’s programs.

The Future of Nursing Scholars program appreciates the continuing support from Johnson & Johnson and we congratulate them on an impressive anniversary!
