BYU's Kent Blad named fellow of national critical care association

The Society of Critical Care named Brigham Young University College of Nursing professor Kent Blad a fellow of the American College of Critical Care Medicine.

Blad is the first nurse from the state of Utah to receive this award and is one of only four nurses to be named a fellow this year.

Blad has dedicated the last 18 years to practicing critical care nursing and medicine and giving his best as a nurse practitioner and educator.

"I teach my students to think of each patient as a family member. Everyone deserves the best care you can give," said Blad.

Fellows are chosen for their achievements in research, education, practice and service to the profession. Blad's service to the SCCM has been extensive.

He is a member of the Nursing Advisory Board, directs and teaches a course on fundamental critical care for nurse practitioners and was elected chair of the Advanced Nurse Practice Committee. His contributions to the society earned him a presidential citation as well as his fellowship.

The SCCM has 12,000 members in 75 countries in many different health professions and is dedicated to advancing research and the practice of critical care. Of the 758 fellows, only 42 are nurses.
