NURS 6010: Research and Evidence as a Foundation for Nursing
NURS 6015: Pharmacotherapeutics for Nursing Practice
Dr. Bratt’s over-arching research goal is to explore practices that create a sustainable nurse workforce. She has a primary focus on studying the structure, process, and outcomes of nurse residency programs. Dr. Bratt has been instrumental in developing national standards for nurse residency programs and engaging in evaluation of those standards. Her research examines the processes of newly licensed nurse transition to practice and the influence of nurse residency programs on competency development, effective professional role socialization and retention. Dr. Bratt is particularly interested in the rural nursing workforce and studies characteristics of small rural community and critical access hospitals and rural nurses’ perceptions of care, the practice environment, and safety culture.
