Faculty and Staff

Nadine Aktan

Professor • Department of Nursing

A seasoned nurse leader, nursing academic and family nurse practitioner. My primary research focus, starting with my doctoral dissertation, had been the study of pregnant and postpartum women as defined and operationalized by the concept functional status after childbirth and its relationship to demographic variables, anxiety and social support. Throughout my tenure, this program of research evolved to the assessment of primary health care outcomes and aspects of nursing education as well as the publications of two editions of a book for nurse practitioners. This growing body of presented and published work demonstrates an ability to collaborate effectively with all members of the multi-disciplinary team in academic, practice and research settings.
