Angie Docherty, Nurs.D., M.P.H., RN

  • Associate Professor, School of Nursing
  • Campus Associate Dean


My nursing education and experience stems from the UK. I have a personal interest in health inequity, particularly in the area of prenatal and postpartum care and have researched this topic in the UK and the US. My clinical research in both countries helps me realize that nurses, internationally, are best placed to embrace diversity and challenge social injustice. I have active research ongoing in the fields of health equity and nursing education, where I have focused on simulation and grading practices. I am currently a member of the National League for Nursing Education Research Review Panel.
