She obtained her PhD in nursing and was both a clinical nurse specialist and an acute care nurse practitioner. Blum was also a professor and maintained her nursing practice as well. She was a much sought-after speaker and was published over 30 times in different forms. Her contributions to the ACC are too numerous to list them all.
“Dr. Blum was a role model for future generations,” said Deborah S. Croy, DNP, RN, ANP-BC, AACC. “She was a tireless advocate for her profession, peers and her patients. Her loss will be felt not only in the ACC community but by her family, friends, coworkers and students.”
