Faculty
Lisa Wolf, PhD, RN, CEN, CPEN, FAEN

Lisa Wolf has contributed to the specialty of Emergency Nursing for over 20 years, as an Emergency Department Nurse, educator, researcher and internationally-known lecturer.

Her focus rests in Nursing Research, examining those behaviors, actions and non-actions, that drive and change our practice, for better or worse. Lisa is one of those rare educators who can take research-results and show us "the how and why" it impacts our actual clinical practice. Currently, she works as a researcher with an emphasis on emergency nursing environments and the effects on clinical decision-making.

Lisa is an entertaining and compelling speaker who is able to make the connections of the hidden side of nursing practice, and what really makes it work...or not work!.
