Release Date: September 4, 1997

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- An internationally acclaimed leader in nursing will deliver the first University at Buffalo School of Nursing Dr. Bonnie Bullough Lecture at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25, in the Center for Tomorrow on the UB North (Amherst) Campus.

Norma M. Lang, dean and professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, will discuss “The Power of Quality Nursing Practice.” A reception will follow the lecture.

Lang is known for her pioneering work in nursing in areas such as quality assurance, classification systems for nursing practice, establishment of nursing centers, and innovation and professionalism in practice. The author of more than 90 articles, she has served on numerous national nursing commissions and boards, including the American Organization of Nurse Executives and the National Advisory Committee for the Health and Human Services Agency for Health Care Policy and Research.

Lang received an honorary doctorate in science from the State University of New York and an honorary master of arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania, as well as numerous honors and awards. She also earned a doctorate in educational administration and curriculum, and a master’s degree in nursing from Marquette University, and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Aleverno College.

The Dr. Bonnie Bullough Lecture was established in 1996 through a $100,000 gift from Vern L. Bullough to honor the memory of his wife and colleague, Bonnie, former dean of the UB nursing school, who died in 1996.

The lecture will be free and open to the public. For reservations, contact Sally Sams, alumni relations coordinator for the nursing school, at (716) 829-3209.
