Research Interests/Clinical Practice
Jennifer’s experiences in the emergency department and inpatient behavioral health settings have sparked a passion for scholarly inquiry on the nursing care of individuals with mental illness. Her doctoral dissertation, for which she received a Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing grant, focuses on the relationships of emergency nurses’ perceptions of individualized care, caring behaviors, stigma, and attribution with respect to the treatment of individuals with mental illness.
Other research interest includes the understanding of the effect of V.I.P. care on nursing, and its contribution to disparities and inequities in healthcare.
