Cristina Stearns

The Ph.D. in Nursing program is proud to announce the anticipated graduation of our first doctoral student in Spring 2012.

Cristina Perez Stearns successfully defended her dissertation, “The Relationship Between Familism and Help-Seeking With Hispanic Nursing Students,” on March 20, 2012. Cristina currently works for Ramapo College of New Jersey and traveled to IUP every other week for course work. She began the part-time doctoral program with the first cohort of students in Fall 2008.

The program is currently accepting applications for the next cohort of students that will begin in Fall 2012. For more information, contact Teresa Shellenbarger (tshell@iup.edu) or visit the Ph.D. in Nursing webpage.
