UT-Houston’s Hardwicke to Serve Two-Year Term as HANCB President
Robin Hardwicke, Ph.D., assistant professor of internal medicine at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, has been elected to a two-year term as president of the HIV/AIDS Nursing Certification Board (HANCB). Hardwicke, former president-elect, took office as president Nov. 12 after the annual Association of Nurses in AIDS Care Conference in Orlando, Fla.
“I feel strongly that individuals who provide care to HIV-infected patients be well-educated in the most current treatment regimens and understand the societal barriers that HIV-infected individuals face on a daily basis,” Hardwicke said. “Nurses, in particular, should be experienced in HIV care because the disease numbers and rates of transmission do not seem to be decreasing in our country, let alone in our city of Houston.”
The HANCB is a nonprofit organization that is responsible for the certification and recertification processes of professionals in the nursing field in order to promote competency of nurses caring for persons with HIV/AIDS.
“Hardwicke is a tireless advocate for HIV patient care, teaching and research,” said Philip Johnson, M.D., professor and director of the Division of General Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine at the UT Medical School at Houston. “We are proud of her achievements.”
