I served as the Quality Data Manager for Franciscan St. Francis Health for the three area campus hospitals of Carmel, Indianapolis, and Mooresville. This position had allowed me the opportunity to impact patient care through collection/submission and analysis of patient outcomes by communicating trends to staff, physicians, and administrators to improve the overall patient experience and support positive patient outcomes. I continue to assist the organization with their quality projects. My doctoral focus is related to the effects of staff and patient engagement with bundled interventions for inpatient fall reduction.
I served as adjunct faculty for University of Indianapolis School of Nursing for the past two years with completion of my current contract ending this semester. Content areas included APRN Roles and Ethics for the Nurse Practitioner track of the MSN Program.
I will complete my DNP in May of 2015.
