This past July, three School of Nursing faculty members, Helen Taggart, Ph.D., RN; Pam Mahan, Ph.D., RN; and Katrina Embrey, DNS, RN, attended and presented at the 30th International Nursing Research Congress in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The conference, presented by Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, is held annually in different countries to provide attendees with the opportunity to learn from and exchange evidence-based research.
To be considered to present at the conference, presenters had to be a member of Sigma, a global organization with a mission to advance world health and celebrate nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service; and successfully complete a peer-review process.
Faculty presented the following research during podium presentations:
Helen Taggart, Ph.D., RN; Pamela Mahan, Ph.D, RN; and Haresh Rochani, DrPH presented “Changes in Baccalaureate Nursing Students’ Perceptions about Caring for Dying Patients”
Katrina Embrey, DNS RN; Helen Taggart, Ph.D., RN; and Haresh Rochani, DrPH“Stress and Mindfulness in Nursing Students”
