Annie Lewandowski in 2012 Terri Murtland Scholarship Winner
Terri Murtland Scholarship
Terri inspired many on to careers in nursing and midwifery to such a degree that a favorite saying among CNM’s at the University of Michigan became “what would Terri do”? This statement reflects the trust and respect that Terri held among her colleagues. She modeled careful consideration of the clinical situation and in partnership with the woman and her family and her obstetric colleagues as needed, she would develop a plan of care which was trusted, by all involved, to be the right thing to do. Considered a mentor to many and a pioneer in midwifery in Michigan, Terri joined the Nurse-Midwifery Service at UMHS in 1985. She was a highly respected clinician, researcher and teacher whose leadership inspired those around her. Terri worked diligently, inspiring others to give their best at all times to the women and families for whom they cared.
