Cipriano, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN for being named, for the fourth consecutive year, as one of Modern Healthcare’s “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.” Her efforts in health care quality and advancing nursing’s influence on health care policy has not only earned her the recognition of being named Most Influential, but as the “Top 25 Women in Healthcare” in 2015 as well.
