Dr. Beth E. Jameson is a nurse scientist and assistant professor at Seton Hall University. She is a Certified Nurse Leader (CNL), New Jersey certified school nurse, and a certified instructor for Youth Mental Health First Aid. She has a distinctive educational focus on nursing research, epidemiology, and community/population health. Her major objective is to bring understanding and advocacy to the role of the school nurse; a role which frequently goes unnoticed as an integral contributor to the health and wellness of our nation's children. Dr. Jameson is active in regional and national professional nursing organizations, including NASN where she is a national presenter on National Association of School Nurses (NASN) Focus on the Framework™: Quality Improvement.
Current research projects include investigating school health services gaps in care, school nurse workload, and understanding school nurse staffing relationships to student health and education outcomes. In 2021 Seton Hall University, College of Nursing named Dr. Jameson Researcher of the Year for her research on school health nursing and school health services. She is a founding member and advisor of the Center for School Health Innovation and Quality. Most recently, Dr. Jameson was inducted into the National Academy of School Nursing Fellows at the annual NASN Conference in June 2022.
