Professor Minato and Professor Otten Present at State Conference
Miyo Minato and Becky Otten presented “Leveraging Academic-Practice Partnership to Improve Ambulatory Care Experience” with Hazel Torres from Kaiser Permanente. They compared and contrasted the conceptual framework with current practice and cited areas of improvement that could be enhanced through academic-practice partners. The conference focused on analyzing current workforce trends in nursing education and identifying strategies for meeting the educational needs of future nurses.
Since 2008, Professor Minato has taught in the MSN program and co-teaches NUR 202 Current Trends & Issues in Professional Nursing. In this course, Minato emphasizes ethical decision-making as the foundation for nursing practice.
Professor Otten was instrumental in the design of the MSN Nurse Educator track and helped to launch the program in 2003 at Mount Saint Mary’s. She is the section coordinator for the MSN core courses and teaches NUR 208 Curriculum Development, NUR 294 Evaluation & Testing, and NUR 297 Nurse Educator Practicum (college-setting).
