Stacey Marie Frawley, EdD, RN, is Clinical Assistant Professor of the Stony Brook School of Nursing Department of Graduate Studies in Nursing Organization and Leadership. Dr. Frawley completed a Doctor of Education at Hofstra University, a Master of Science at Stony Brook University, and a Bachelor of Science at Stony Brook University. The doctoral area of research in the Learning and Teaching Department at Hofstra, involved hand-off communication among healthcare disciplines. Research focused on improving patient safety with analysis of accuracy of handoff communication between inter-professional and intra-professional groups in a simulated environment. Using a standardized tool, the findings supported the use of inter-professional simulated education (IPSE) pedagogy in undergraduate nursing education to improve handoff communication. Scholarly interests include inter-professional simulation with an emphasis on patient safety. She has presented regionally and nationally on this topic, as well as on shaping pedagogy to support client-focused care.
Faculty appointments have included Program Director of onsite accelerated and basic baccalaureate nursing programs and Chair, department of graduate studies in nursing leadership and organization. Clinically, her nursing background includes medical-surgical, telemetry, and extensive work in the intensive care setting, specifically in the care and well-being of cardiothoracic surgical adults. Currently she practices in the setting of hospice as an Adult Nurse Practitioner with a shift in focus toward holistic nursing, encompassing western and eastern philosophies.
