Nickolaus Miehl, PhD, R.N., CHSE

  • Clinical Assistant Professor, School of Nursing

Biography

I have been a nurse for 20 years, with a clinical practice focused in critical care, forensic, and trauma nursing. For the past 15 years, I have been a full-time nurse educator and have been on faculty at the OHSU School of Nursing, Monmouth Campus since 2012. My primary teaching has been in the Undergraduate Program with additional teaching responsibility in the Health Systems and Organizational Leadership (HSOL) and Master of Nursing Education programs. I also serve as the Monmouth Campus Faculty Simulation Coordinator. My program of research focuses on leadership in complex healthcare delivery systems. I have an active program of research examining simulation as an emerging modality as both a formative teaching-learning activity and as one approach to authentic, summative assessment.

Presently, I serve on the OHSU Faculty Senate, Faculty Senate Executive Committee, OHSU Academic Program Review Committee, OCNE Research and Evaluation Committee, School of Nursing APT Committee, Monmouth Campus Student Affairs committee, and the Monmouth Campus Curriculum Committee. I am also involved in performance excellence initiatives across the University.
