Dr. Cazzell Awarded Research Grant by NLNPosted On: August 28, 2012
Dr. Mary Cazzell, a member of the BrainWise research team, was one of six distinguished educators nationwide to be awarded a 2012 research grant by the National League for Nursing. The competitive award was presented to her in Anaheim, California for her study titled: The Impact of Critical Thinking upon Clinical Judgment during Simulation with Senior Nursing Students. The award reinforces her work in the area of measuring executive cognitive function. She will examine how well nurse educators are helping nursing students develop critical clinical judgment, skills, knowledge, and ethical behavior to address the complexities of nursing practice and bridge the education-practice gap. Dr. Cazzell is a professor for the School of Nursing at the University of Texas at Arlington, and joined the BrainWise team in 2009.
