Nicholas Zumwalt, PhD, RN, CEN, CPEN
Nicholas Zumwalt joined the faculty of nursing at his alma mater in 2015. His research interests are in symptom management and meaning, particularly symptoms of suffering in non-verbal children with neuro-developmental disorders. He presented on this topic at the 2016 Western Institute of Nursing, where he was also awarded the Ann M. Voda American Indian/Alaskan Native/First Nation Conference Award. Nicholas hopes to strengthen the understanding of suffering and the family dynamic of care in non-verbal patients in order to better identify and treat suffering through a framework of palliative care.
