Dr. Stinson's areas of special interest include adult and critical care nursing and clinical decision making processes.
Dr. Stinson has been practicing as a nurse for over 18 years. She has worked in
a variety of clinical settings including med-surg, neurology, intensive
care, pain management, and, most recently, cardiology private practice
and health promotion/preventive services.
Dr. Stinson's passion and love for nursing led her to teaching. Prior to
accepting a full time position at Seton Hall, she worked in an
adjunct capacity for several years teaching in both the didactic and
clinical settings at the undergraduate and graduate level. She was
extremely fortunate to be able to pursue her doctorate degree through the
generous support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation - New Jersey
Nurse Initiative. Dr. Stinson's dissertation research examined registered nurses'
clinical experience and clinical decision making processes in relation
to physical restraint use in the critical care setting.
Dr. Stinson is a member of Sigma Theta Tau International - Gamma Nu Chapter,
Eastern Nursing Research Society (ENRS), and the American Association of
Critical Care Nurses.
