Patricia A. Chin
Director School of Nursing
Office: ST F417
I am pleased to be serving as Director of the School of Nursing. These are challenging time for nursing and for nursing education..
My area of clinical expertise is Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing. In the undergraduate nursing program I teach courses in nursing case management with vulnerable population, and nursing concept in health promotion and treatment adherence. In the graduate program I teach courses related to nursing theory, nursing research, and nursing care of vulnerable populations. The essence of professional nursing was originally grounded in the community. I hope that in the future we can establish a CSLA nursing wellness center and nurse managed clinic either on or off-campus. .
My research interests are in the areas of community-based nursing and wellness and health promotion. I am the co-editor of a textbook on rehabilitation nursing and the author of a review text on the fundamentals of nursing. My dissertation was "Factors Influencing Battered Women's Perceptions of Controllability of Violence in Intimate Relationships."
