Nursing Faculty Member Helps Homeless Youth
Maureen Byrnes, D.N.P., R.N., C.N.M., who is an instructor at Seton Hall University College of Nursing and just completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at Seton Hall developed a ground breaking scholarly project that Covenant House - NJ transitional housing is using.
Dr. Byrnes adapted a national model which uses text messages to communicate with women and improve health literacy and awareness. Dr. Byrnes's project targeted young, single, homeless women in NJ who were pregnant or had small children, with the long term goal of improving maternal-infant health outcomes. The enrollment rate of women living at Covenant House - NJ transitional housing was more than 80 percent with an astounding 0 percent un-enrollment rate.
