More About Crosby Rolston, Karen
I joined Grande Prairie Regional College Nursing Education and Health Studies faculty in 2009 and since then have been teaching various second year courses.
My research interests lies in scholarship, what it is and how to produce it. My master’s capstone project primarily utilized a knowledge translation framework to investigate through qualitative approaches, barriers to developing scholarship in order to develop interventions to improve this activity. I also collaborate with colleagues who utilize a variety of quantitative forms of data generation and analysis to answer research questions about the experiences of students and faculty in nursing programs.
My clinical nursing practice expertise has been in maternal-child nursing. I support health promotion that supports the family and in particular those who experience social inequality.
I have taught primarily second year nursing courses in a CBL tutorial setting that deals in introduction to acute care, introduction to maternal/child nursing, family health and inter professional education. I have expanded my interests by teaching in the Unit clerk program.
