“Being a leader in nursing means being forward thinking. Obtaining my doctorate would allow me to be prepared for the many roles in nursing at a time when the nursing landscape is shifting. My second reason to enroll stemmed from a passion that has evolved to improve practice and improve outcomes in an organization and in nursing as a whole whether through an academic position or a healthcare administration position. My current goal is to attain a faculty position where I can help develop and prepare nurses to help advance the practice of nursing.
Loyola University New Orleans School of Nursing professor Laurie Anne Ferguson, D.N.P., A.P.R.N., F.N.P.-C., is an integral part of a five-year, innovative colorectal cancer study funded by a $1.3 million grant from the American Cancer Society. Ferguson is part of a team studying how people understand basic health information and services, and how that understanding—or lack of understanding—relates to patients getting screened for colorectal cancer.
