Angela M Schooley, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, College of Nursing
I develop and design nursing education efforts in the undergraduate nursing curriculum. I guide students in learning nursing concepts in the classroom, online, and in the clinical setting.
My research focus is inclusive learning, clinical judgment in undergraduate education, indicators of NCLEX success, curriculum design, and neuroprotective care of the preterm infant.
Nurses are their patient’s eyes, ears and voices when they are unable to advocate for themselves…we have an obligation to practice at the best of our ability to protect our patients and to enable them to achieve/maintain/restore health.
