Courses Taught
University of Washington Bothell:
BNURS 520 – Scholarly Inquiry for Nursing Practice I (3 cr); 2010, 2012
The overall goal of the course is to increase advanced nurses' abilities to analyze problems and to make decisions based on application of research concepts and methods in a variety of settings. Toward this goal, the course will incorporate lectures, assigned readings, reviews of the literature, group discussions, and individual presentations.  BNURS 520 is concerned with analysis of the research process as it applies to nursing, including identification of researchable problems, use of the literature, re-conceptualizing theory from related fields, development of conceptual frameworks, and selection of appropriate methods for investigating clinical problems.

BNURS 521 – Scholarly Inquiry for Nursing Practice II (3 cr); 2007, 2008
This course and its prerequisite (BNURS 520) describe research methodology as it is used in developing plans for implementing a research project with relevance to nursing science and practice.  These courses provide the foundation for critically evaluating nursing and other research for application in clinical practice. 

BNURS 503 – Advanced Fieldwork (1-6 cr); 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012
This course offers an opportunity to apply concepts examined throughout the program in the real-world context of communities, health care systems, staff development, or educational settings.  The focus is on preparing students for advanced nursing roles in communities, population-based care, management in health care systems, or education.

BNURS 598 – Scholarly Projects (1-6 cr); 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012
Scholarly inquiry with in-depth, focused analysis, culminating in a written product/report for dissemination.

BNURS 407 – Cultural and Social Issues in Health Care (3 cr) 2006; (5 cr); 2008
Examines the influence of culture, ethnicity, race, class, gender and sexual orientation on health and illness. Critically analyzes how oppression and privilege relate to health and healing. Students apply self awareness, knowledge, skills in planning for and providing non-discriminatory and culturally competent health care in a multicultural society.

BNURS 403 – Evidence Based Practice and Nursing Inquiry (5 cr); 2012
Develops beginning competence in accessing and evaluating scientific knowledge as a base for promoting evidence based practice in nursing care.  Examines components of the process of nursing inquiry as a tool to advance nursing knowledge and a tool to promote evidence-based practice.

BNURS 409 ¬– Nursing Strategies for Community as Client (6 cr); 2007
A clinical course with emphasis on application of interpersonal and clinical therapies; on coordination ofcommunity resources; on effectiveness of educational interventions; and on characteristics of nursing practice in community settings. Supervised students in a variety of community clinic, sexual assault, and school settings.

BHLTH 497 – Issues in American Indian Health (5 cr); 2008, 2009, 2011
This course provides an overview of burgeoning health issues in American Indian communities.  Through a variety of learning methods (e.g., seminars, American Indian literature, film, and guest speakers), students will explore how various social determinants of health intersect and shape health conditions, health practices, and delivery of care.  In particular, students will question how health inequities for Native communities are created and can be addressed from a perspective that transcends genetics and individual lifestyle and takes into account historical, economic, sociocultural, and political contexts for reservation-based and urban American Indians.  This course is designed to provide students with foundational context for practice with indigenous communities and is built upon concepts of postcolonialism and decolonization.

BNURS 495 – Senior Portfolio (1 cr); 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012
Students create a portfolio demonstrating the progress made toward individual and program goals. The portfolio will contain examples of papers, and a reflective summary on the learning that has occurred.

BNURS 499 – Independent Study (1-6 cr); 2008, 2010
This course is designed to provide an undergraduate student of the Nursing Program an opportunity to investigate a selected problem and to do an analysis and interpretation of the findings resulting from the investigation under supervision of a faculty member. The credit distribution is determined by the student and faculty member and is dependent upon the number of quarters used to complete the project.

University of Michigan (Teaching Assistant):
N821 – Advanced Nursing Theory Development (3 cr); 2006
In this course, students synthesize theory development knowledge with strategies for testing theoretical statements. Students critically evaluate, compare, and contrast the major theory development strategies used in nursing. This knowledge will be used to construct theoretical statements at a specific theory level, as well as design nursing research in which the theoretical statements will be examined.
