Katherine Doyon

University of Utah

I am a PhD student at the University of Utah. I earned my BSN from the University of Minnesota but instead of going into nursing I went into teaching. I earned my master's degree in education from Pace University and was a NYC public school teacher for seven years. I taught science to high school students before I decided to go back to nursing. While I was a teacher I participated in many research programs aimed at reflecting on pedagogical best practices and increasing the use of technology in the classroom. My research area of interest is increasing self-efficacy in new graduates' end of life communication through high fidelity simulation.
