Professor Whitney recently joined the Stony Brook University School of Nursing as Assistant Professor where she teaches courses in the doctoral program. As a nurse scientist and bioethicist, her teaching interests are in providing doctoral nursing students with quality methodologic and ethical training to become scholars in their areas of interest. Her program of scholarship is focused on uncovering the moral and ethical dimensions of nursing care, especially in relation to the care of highly stigmatized or underserved communities. She believes that the ability to provide patients with excellent, compassionate, and humanistic care necessitates the understanding of clinicians' ethical and moral considerations in care.  She is particularly interested in qualitative approaches to inquiry and theoretical foundations for nursing science. Professor Whitney completed her undergraduate and graduate training at the University Pennsylvania. Her dissertation research involved exploring the circumstances under which clinicians moralize substance use during pregnancy and lactation.
