The appointment, effective August 1, was made bycAnthony Patterson, Senior Vice President for Inpatient Services, also an alumnus of the School.
“When I graduated from our BSN program my goal was to be part of nursing leadership for UAB Hospital,” Poe said. “I joined UAB five years ago as Director of Emergency Services and am fortunate to have developed great relationships with members of the clinical and academic nursing team. Completing our DNP program in 2013 has given me the tools needed to perform at my best as CNO. I am very excited about the great things that the UAB School of Nursing and UAB Hospital will do together to take UAB Nursing to the next level.”
