Dr. Pribulick is the first full time faculty to join the RN to BSN Completion Program at Fisher College/. She began her nursing career in upstate New York where she was a telemetry nurse before entering graduate school. While a graduate student, she worked on a NIH grant researching cardiovascular disease in rural women. The results of this study have been published in The Journal of Rural Health. Her dissertation was based on this study and was published in the Online Journal of Rural Nursing and Health Care. Dr. Pribulick has disseminated her findings at nursing conferences and symposiums. She comes to Fisher College from Norwich University, where she developed an interest in simulation teaching in addition to her clinical specialty of Community Health nursing and interest in nursing research. In addition to expertise in cardiovascular disease in women, she brings expertise in community health, school health and home care, and hospice nursing.
Teaching Philosophy
I believe that effective bachelor’s education for the registered nurse learner needs to address whole individuals as they fit in society, as they work with others, and as they grow and develop. My philosophy comes from my own experiences as a RN student and the many respectful mentoring relationships I had with faculty who now number among the most valued of my colleagues. I also strongly support the tenants of nursing ethics in both education and practice in our contemporary society with its many ethical challenges.
