During her career, Dr. Lundeen has provided national and international leadership in the areas of primary health care delivery, community nursing practice, clinical informatics, nursing education and nursing workforce. As a charter member of the NLN Nursing Centers Council and Chair in 1982, she advocated for the expansion of academic nursing center in schools and colleges of nursing across the nation. Her funded demonstrations projects and research activities have provided working models of community based practice for replication in other communities. She and her team at UWM developed one of the first clinical documentation tools for community nursing practice. The Automated Community Health Information System (AHCIS) results in a relational database that has supported nursing research for more than 2 decades including multiple doctoral dissertations.
Dr. Lundeen has led innovation in nursing education particularly through the pioneering work of the UWM College of Nursing in distance education. The UWM On-line PhD, one of the first fully asynchronous doctoral programs in nursing education was launched with great success in 2003. She has also provided significant leadership in the area of nursing workforce issues. As one of the founding leaders and first President of the Wisconsin Center for Nursing, she has been a powerful advocate for the collection and analysis of nursing supply and demand data for evidence based decision making on nursing workforce solutions. She spearheaded the effort to bring nursing leaders from the Wisconsin Technical College System together with leaders of the private and public colleges and universities together to address capacity issues in nursing education. The resulting group, the Administrators of Nursing Education in Wisconsin (ANEW) meets regularly to craft collaborative solutions to nursing education issues. Dr. Lundeen was Principal Investigator on a Department of Labor demonstration project to create innovative employer-educator solutions for the nursing faculty shortage. The State of Wisconsin Initiative to Fast Track (SWIFT) Nurse Educators has resulted to date in 65 new masters prepared nurses contractually obligated to teach in nursing programs throughout Wisconsin. She was appointed to the Governor’s HealthCare Select Committee in 2004; co-chaired the Wisconsin Task Force on Nurse Faculty Shortage in 2006; and chaired the UW System Task Force on Nursing Faculty in 2008.
Dr. Lundeen’s leadership in research has focused on the development of teams to address complex health issues and health care solutions. Long term and robust partnerships with community based organization has been the hallmark of her work in community health and primary care for decades and community members are included as partners in research activities. She is Principal Investigator on the Collaborative for Intelligent Health Information Science Initiative (CIHISI), supported by a National Science Foundation grant, brings scientists from UW College of Engineering, Health Science and Nursing and the Schools of Business and Information Studies together to develop interdisciplinary solutions in the area health care informatics.
Dr. Lundeen has provided leadership for three decades in the area of community health nursing practice and primary health care to vulnerable populations. She initiated a nursing-managed health center in Chicago in the 1977. Erie Family Health Care became the first nurse-managed federally funded community health center in the nation in 1982. She developed the community nursing center initiative at UW-Milwaukee in 1985 and has received more than $10M in public and private funding to support four nursing centers in southeastern Wisconsin since 1986. The Lundeen model for comprehensive primary health care, known internationally, identifies community nursing centers as a solution to bridge the gap between public health and primary care and promote health improved health outcomes for all.
