My interest is to reveal the relationship of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system component to patient outcomes. More specifically, my study “The Relationship between Nursing Documentation in EHR and the Incidence of Pressure Ulcers in the Intensive Care Units (ICUs)” focused on exploring the quality/comprehensiveness of EHR nursing documentation of pressure ulcers and to investigate the relationship between nursing documentation and incidence of pressure ulcers in ICUs.

My interest also includes comparing the effect of clinical simulation in teaching versus traditional teaching methodologies on the learning outcomes. More specifically, I am particularly interested in the effectiveness of human patient simulator implemented in critical care course to increase ICU clinical performance in undergraduate nursing education.


I teach NUR 2085 and 2086: Nursing informatics Practicum 1 and 2; NUR 2070: Information Technology Project Management; and NUR 2383: Methods in Technology Evaluation and Usability.
