Rozina Bhimani, director of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at St. Catherine University, recently traveled to Chicago with students Margaret Longley, Michell MacDonald and Patricia Fahey Bacon.

The three DNP students were accepted for poster presentations at the Midwest Nursing Research Society’s 37th Annual Research Conference (March 7-10). Topics for their research posters:

  • “Cultivating Caring in Nursing Education,” by Fahey Bacon
  • “The Effect of Practice Facilitation on Diabetes Outcome Measures,” by Longley
  • “A Step Towards Understanding Cultrural Competence in Public Health Nursing,” by MacDonald.

While there, the students also participated in various breakout sessions and discussions on various subjects including adolescent health, decision-making interventions and palliative care.

“This was a great opportunity for our students to network and share their work,” says Bhimani. “I saw a crowd gather around them during their poster session, wanting to know more about their research. People were also coming up to me to ask about our DNP program.”

St. Kate’s launched its DNP in 2008. The program is designed for individuals in advanced nursing roles who have completed a master’s degree in nursing.
