Anna Winquist, MN, RN (She/Her/Hers)

I have been faculty in the School of Nursing and Health Studies since 2013. I have a wide range of professional experiences working with children, families, communities, and institutions spanning to non-profits, hospitals, clinics, policy, and public and private health sectors. My experience as a nurse has focused on perinatal medicine, forensic nursing, and policy. I was a University of Washington Bothell Community Based Learning and Research (CBLR) Fellow during the 2017-2018 academic year and a Writing Pedagogy Fellow during the 2019-2020 academic year. I value a welcoming, inclusive, equitable, and diverse educational environment that provides student centered education.


I am passionate about child abuse and neglect research and prevention.  My current research explores nurses recognizing and responding to child abuse and neglect. My hope is to provide research that supports policy change to improve the child abuse and neglect education for mandatory reporters. I am participating in research that explores topics on environment health and genomics in nursing education, the National Institutes of Health Toolbox-Cognition Battery, and development of a mobile instructional tool for high-risk perinatal individual. Future scholarship interests include parent experience with child protective services, perinatal individuals and opioid use, and adolescent LGBTQ+ experience with abuse and neglect.
