Dr. Carol Thompson, a tenured Professor University of Kentucky teaching AG-ACNPs, was one of the first 100 ACNPs certified and has practiced and taught this content for the past 19 years. She is also certified as a FNP. She created the first ACNP program in Tennessee and as coordinator has grown the program over 18 years to include BSN-DNP as well as post-doctoral students.  Collaborating with FNP colleague’s she developed curriculum for students wishing dual AG-ACNP and FNP preparation.  She holds a PhD from Case Western University; a DNP from the University of Tennessee; a Post-Masters – ACNP, FNP from the University of Tennessee; a MS from the University of Maryland and a BSN from Florida State University. Her fellowships include FAANP, FCCM, FAAN and is a NIH Fellow in Genetics. She was the second nurse in 42 years to be president of the Society of Critical Care Medicine and the first NP. She has also served on the AACN national board of directors and the Tennessee Board of Nursing. She is a Black Belt Six Sigma which is the highest rank in quality improvement skills and has been applied this expertise in developing projects such as the ICU Liberation Collaborative and Thrive . She frequently speaks at national and international muiltidisciplinary conferences. Her areas of research include dyspnea in mechanical ventilated adults, pain, music therapy and simulation.

The MED lab is a place where doctors and engineers work side by side to create new lifesaving medical technologies. We design and construct devices to make interventional medicine more accurate, less invasive, and more effective. With a world-class medical center a 5-minute walk from the lab, we are often in operating rooms observing surgical procedures and conducting experiments with the devices we build. We also patent our work, which enables us to transfer it to commercial products, amplifying its real-world impact. Our partners include startup companies such as Pathfinder Theraputics and Acoustic MedSystems, as well as larger companies including Intuitive Surgical and MathWorks. Current major projects include a surgical robot with tentacle-like, needle-diameter arms that removes tumors from the center of the head through the nose (partnership with Neurosurgery), a parallel robot that reduces invasiveness in cochlear implant surgery which restores hearing to the deaf (partnership with Otolanrygology), endowing the da Vinci with "surgical GPS" to enable more accurate and less invasive kidney surgery (partnership with Urologic Surgery), as well as systems for lung interventions (partnership with Radiology), transurethral laser prostate surgery (partnership with Urologic Surgery), and needle-based treatment of cerebral hemorrhages and epilepsy (partnership with Neurological Surgery). Graduate and undergraduate students in the MED Lab receive a unique educational experience in which they work side by side with surgeons, and are encouraged to pursue not only ongoing lab projects, but also their own ideas as they learn to be innovators in surgical engineering and robotics.

In 1998, working with Hagley Museum and Library, Dr. Nutter helped create an exhibit and pilot documentary film on . duPont and the African American School rebuilding program. She has collected over fifty hours of oral histories of African Americans in Delaware. This has resulted in several short films: Littleton Mitchell: Human Rights Warrior, Conversation with Luther J. Porter , Conversation with Jane E. Mitchell: African American Nurse, Conversation with Reverend Maurice J. Moyer: Civil Rights Activist and Conversation, Dr. Eugene McGowan: African American School Psychologist and Community Leader and Edward Loper: African American Painter. A Separate Place: The Schools . duPont Built , a full length documentary, has aired on WHYY-TV and won an Honorable Mention in the 2003 Wilmington Film Festival and a Best Video Documentary Production in the 2012 Black International Cinema in Berlin, Germany. A half hour version of this film, funded by the Delaware Humanities Forum, was distributed to all public schools in the state.
