Brief Statement of Scholarly Interests
My current program of research focuses on simulation learning and improving clinical decision making (CDM) skills and clinical competency for nursing students based on the use of high fidelity human simulation (HFHS). My current study and plans for future research align with the National League of Nursing’s (NLN)  research priorities of evaluating technology in the teaching of decision making skills. My research trajectory includes analyzing and making curriculum recommendations based on the outcomes of this research.
