On June 3rd, Oak Point University had the pleasure of welcoming Yurley Maria Agudelo to our campus.  Agudelo is currently the Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) at the University Hospital of San Vicente Foundation in Medellin, Columbia.  The hospital is the largest one in Columbia specializing in transplants, and the hospital is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.  As the CNO, she is in charge of 160 RNs and 860 LPNs.

The purpose of Agudelo’s trip was to improve her English and learn about nurse education, nurse leadership, and nursing care models in Chicago.  During her time at Oak Point University, she was able to meet with the Executive Council.  She also sat in on a nursing lecture and toured the simulation center. The visit was very successful and Oak Point appreciates the time she spent at the University.
