Woodley’s Articles on Health Disparities and Diversity in Nursing Published

Lisa Woodley, PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, CHPN, has had two articles published recently. The first, published in Pediatric Nursing, investigates how health disparities impact pediatric patients with asthma, and the instrumental role nurses have in helping reduce these disparities.

The second article, titled Acculturation into nursing for Hispanic/Latino prelicensure nursing students and new graduates: Integrative review of literature, was published in Nurse Educator and is an integrative literature review focused on pre-licensure Hispanic and Latinx nursing students’ experiences as they join the culture of nursing.

Following the release of this article, Dr. Woodley sat down with the Editor and Chief of Nurse Educator, Marilyn H. Oermann, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, and recorded this podcast episode discussing the socialization of Hispanic/Latinx nursing students into nursing.

Well done, Dr. Woodley!
