Assistant Professor of Nursing

Nurses are the frontline providers of health care, and as such, are well-positioned to influence patient outcomes.

Dr. Lasater is a nationally recognized researcher who uses state of the science methods to explicate the value of nurses and establish the business-case for investing in hospital nursing. Her research identifies how the institutional environments where nurses deliver health care and the policies governing them, impact patient outcomes with a particular focus on patient outcomes that represent complex healthcare challenges.

Nurses are essential to addressing complex health care challenges that are salient to patients and their families.
