Dr. Chenjuan Ma’s research focuses on improving quality of care and outcomes (both nurses and patients) via better organization of nursing. Her doctoral dissertation, titled “Organization of Hospital Nursing and Readmissions among Medicare Surgical Patients”, examined the impact of organizational nursing factors (i.e., work environment, nurse staffing, and nurse education) on elder surgical patients’ risk for readmissions. Her most recent research, builds on her pre- and post-doctoral work, expands to include home health care environments and focuses on modifiable organizational and individual factors that optimize nursing care and patient outcomes across care settings. Dr. Ma has received numerous honors including the doctoral research award from University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in 2011, Rising Star Award from Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), Xi Chapter in 2011, and a research grant from STTI in 2015.
