Research Interests

My research interests evolve around development of a nursing leadership mindset and leadership competencies at the undergraduate and graduate nursing levels. I am committed to the view that having a strong leadership mindset, and seeing leadership as part of every nurse’s responsibility, is necessary for positive patient outcomes. I am particularly interested in how students conceptualize leadership, envision their own roles, and pursue competency, and I am interested in how nursing education can most effectively support student development. I am also interested in patient outcomes in home health, looking at how developing home health nursing staff skills in leadership, assessment, and decision making can improve outcomes.
