Debbie has been an assistant professor in the Division of Nursing at Barry University since 2011. Her primary area of teaching is obstetrics and women’s health, but she also teaches behavioral health and community and public health nursing in the traditional and accelerated option undergraduate nursing program. Debbie has a particular interest in service learning and simulation-based learning experiences for students that reinforce the application of theory into the clinical setting. She also works closely with her colleagues to transform students into culturally competent global citizens through the nurses study abroad program.
Debbie, along with colleagues, is currently working on a study that identifies predictors that contribute to black-white disparities among age adjusted women for breast cancer. She also is engaged in research on the development of cultural competence among nursing students. Her previous research examined how students make a career choice decision for nursing, utilizing the social cognitive career theory.
