Anxiety as a mediating variable to learning outcomes in a human patient simulation experience. Unpublished dissertation. Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH.

Current Research Interests:

I am currently serving as Co-PI on a multi-site study examining whether simulation improves learning outcomes in beginning nursing students. The scenario is concerning safety, falls in particular. We are using standardized patients in this study.

I am also examining physician and senior nursing student communication to evaluate the potential affect it has on patient safety. I am using high fidelity simulation in this study.
