The School of Nursing and University of Iceland faculty maintain joint research efforts, as well as engage in consulting on a range of research topics that include nurse midwifery, childhood obesity prevention, informatics, promoting healthy aging, mental health, and integrative health and healing.
As part of this collaboration, School of Nursing faculty, Doctor of Nursing Practice students, and PhD students participated in an international graduate nursing course in Iceland in 2014. The course “Leadership in nursing – a global approach” provided them an opportunity for sharing of best practices in nursing leadership. Students examined, among other challenges, the changing role of nurses in health care, the image of the nurse and initiatives in nursing. The course included visits to health centers in Reykjavik. Clinical Associate Professor Teddie Potter, PhD, RN, coordinated this first-time offering developed in conjunction the University of Iceland.
