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 with geriatrics and private practice with adults. Related to this program of scholarship is an interest in suicide screening and prevention.
For my research, I examined Advanced Practice Nurses attitudes towards Suicide Prevention in the 15-24-year old population. I formulated a plan for students to mentor single teenage mothers living in transitional housing with their children while I was teaching undergraduate nursing students. I conducted "Gatherings" which are support groups for new psych NP students. The focus of the Gatherings are support, modeling, and mentoring.
I have published and presented my doctoral research on suicide prevention. My course work in the DNP program at Case Western Reserve University, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing stimulated many of my research interests and compliments the courses I teach. I also had the privilege of completing my masters' degree in nursing at Columbia University and my bachelor of science in nursing at Rutgers the State University.
Many of my interests are a reflection of my experiences over the last 30 years as a psychiatric nurse. I am an ANCC board certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Nurse Specialist.
