Biography

Nicholas Zumwalt joined the faculty of nursing at his alma mater. His research interests are in symptom management and meaning, particularly symptoms of suffering in non-verbal pediatric patients with palliative care-qualifying neurological illness. 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.
