My program of scholarship is focused on the intersection of clinical education and psychiatric mental health care of at risk youth in the community. I created an educational opportunity for undergraduate nursing students to work with single teenage mothers living in a safe-house environment. Students functioned as mentors, conducted support groups, and provided health education. As a result of this program, I am developing similar educational units for graduate nursing students. My clinical practice in psychiatric health care is in the community seeing clients in assisted living facilities. Related to this program of scholarship is an interest in suicide screening and prevention among at risk youth.
For my research, I am examining Advanced Practice Nurses attitudes towards Suicide Prevention in Teens and Young Adults. I would like to develop a program for graduate students to utilize that allows them to learn about themselves. I started to formulate a plan for undergraduate students to mentor single teenage mothers living in transitional housing with their children while I was teaching undergraduate nursing students. Since 6/15 I have been conducting "Gatherings" which are support groups for new psych NP students. The focus of the Gatherings are support, modeling, and mentoring.
I have completed a chapter on psychiatric nursing approaches in patients with cancer for a book, published 9/15, entitled Issues of Cancer Survivorship, editor D. Kantor. I am investigating Advanced Practice Nurses attitudes toward suicide in the 15-24 -year population as a doctoral project. I am the author of an article related to my research, published in the 12/15 edition of Compasspoint, the Association of Camp Nurses, a peer reviewed journal.
My course work in the DNP program at Case Western Reserve University, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing stimulates many of my research interests and compliments the courses I teach. I have completed my coursework and plan to complete my research and study in the next year (2017).
Many of my interests are a reflection of my experiences over the last 29 years as a psychiatric nurse. I am a board certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner/Clinical Nurse Specialist.
