Carrie Lyn Sammarco, DrNP '07, is the recipient of the John Dystel Nursing Fellowship in Multiple Sclerosis. The fellowship program is designed for nurses wishing to receive advanced training in MS care. The team approach to managing the care of patients with multiple sclerosis is often utilized by MS centers. Dr. Sammarco's fellowship project will entail visiting various MS centers around the country and assessing the role of advanced practice nurses in these settings. She plans to develop a monograph defining the role of the MS NP which will then be helpful in clarifying and validating the role of the MS advanced practice nurse.
