Bronwynne C. Evans
Bronwynne C. Evans received her M.S. degree of nursing and her Ph.D. degree in education from the University of Washington, Wash, USA, in 1983 and 1994, respectively. She is an Associate Professor at the University of Arizona College of Nursing and Health Innovation in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Evans has been honored with Fellow status at the National League for Nursing’s Academy of Nursing Education, the National Gerontological Nursing Association, and the American Academy of Nursing. She has more than 25 years of experience in working with issues germane to nursing education, gerontological nursing, and focused research related to minority health. Her qualitative work on education of Hispanic/Latino and American Indian nursing students provides empirical data in an area where little exists. Her HRSA-funded recruitment film, recognized by awards from the American Academy of Nursing and Sigma Theta Tau National Honor Society in Nursing, is currently used by more than 100 public schools, healthcare agencies, and nursing schools for recruitment of minority students and cultural competency education. She is currently the Principal Investigator for Momento Crucial, a descriptive, longitudinal, multisite, interdisciplinary, mixed-methods exploration of the caregiving trajectory gain in Mexican-American families caring for elders at home. In future studies, findings from 660 Momento Crucial interviews and corresponding standardized instruments will be used as the basis for an intervention to support families, so as to avoid nursing home placement.
