Kathleen Paco Cadman, , MSN, RN, RAC-CT, CNEUniversity of Nevada-Las Vegas PhD
I am a second year PhD student in Nursing Education and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. As a Registered Nurse my professional background is in global health. I have worked/lived in Guatemala, Honduras, India, Nepal, and China, done research in various regions of Africa, and traveled to 127 countries (so far). After completing my Masters of Nursing Education in 2012, I became a full time Assistant Professor of Nursing at Weber State University, where I currently teach undergraduate research and community health courses, as well as lead the WSU Interdisciplinary Global Health and Development Team. Since then, I have joined the executive board for Sigma Theta Tau: NuNu Chapter, become a Certified Nurse Educator, and completed a postgraduate certificate in Global Health from Johns Hopkins University. My areas of interest include sustainable training practices for rural lay health workers in developing countries, and regulations for health-based study abroad groups traveling to developing countries. I am also an active volunteer for many community-based services, including teaching weekly senior citizen’s yoga classes, and providing monthly travel presentations at a local assisted living facility.
