Research is an area that is critical to advancing practice--in both nursing and education. Delaware Tech is working to establish an Institutional Review Board making conducting original research possible for faculty and students.
I will continue to investigate my areas of interest through literature reviews until I can conduct research. My current interests include patient coaching and developing the growth mindset in students and patients.
Coaching is a powerful tool nurses can use in addition to education to help patients crystallize their goals, develop an action plan, and achieve a healthy lifestyle.
The growth mindset also is a powerful tool patients and students can use to self-actualize and meet their full potential.
In order to sharpen my research skills, I enrolled in a University of Delaware graduate level statistics course to better understand statistical analysis. I've also been accepted to Teacher College, Columbia University's doctoral program in Nursing Education where I plan to explore the concepts of coaching and mindset in the context of nursing education.
