Billy Caceres, ,AGPCNP-BC, RN-BCNew York University PhD
I am currently a part-time student in New York University’s (NYU) PhD in Nursing Research & Theory Development but will be completing my degree full-time as of fall 2014. I previously received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science & Media Studies, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Science in the Adult/Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner program, all from New York University. I work as a Nurse Clinician in the post-anesthesia and cardiovascular specialty care unit at NYU Langone Medical Center where I am an active member of the geriatric and nursing research councils. I am also an adjunct simulation instructor in the baccalaureate nursing program at NYU. My primary research interests are in the area of chronic disease health disparities in older adults, particularly lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals. I am an active in a number of organizations including Sigma Theta Tau International, the NYU Doctoral Student Organization, Eastern Nursing Research Society and the Future of Nursing’s New York State Action Coalition. I have received scholarship and awards from the Rita & Alex Hillman Nursing Foundation, Oncology Nursing Society and National Council of Jewish Women. I hope to serve as a nurse faculty member and expand my program of research in the areas of geriatrics and health disparities.
