New York, N.Y. - Columbia Nursing Professor Named a 2013 RWJF Nurse Faculty Scholar

Lusine Poghosyan, PhD, MPH, RN, an assistant professor at Columbia University School of Nursing, is one of 12 nursing educators in the nation to be named a 2013 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation nurse faculty scholar.

Under the Nurse Faculty Scholars program, Poghosyan will receive a three-year, $350,000 grant to help carry out her research and further her academic career. The award is given to junior faculty members who show exceptional promise as future leaders in academic nursing.

For her research project, she will study the effect of nursing practice environments in primary care settings on the quality of care for patients with chronic diseases -- as well as their effect on nurse practitioner turnover and job satisfaction rates.

"Patients, health care organizations, and nurse practitioners all benefit if we can identify ways for creating an optimal organizational climate for NPs to deliver high-quality care," Poghosyan said. "This award from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is particularly important in light of the growing role that nurse practitioners will be playing in providing healthcare. With our national shortage of primary care physicians, an aging society, and the fact that up to 32 million additional Americans will have health insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act, we need to take steps to ensure that nurse practitioners are in a position to deliver the most effective care possible."
