For more than 300 years, Yale University has inspired the minds that inspire the world. Based in New Haven, Connecticut, Yale brings people and ideas together for positive impact around the globe. A research university that focuses on students and encourages learning as an essential way of life, Yale is a place for connection, creativity, and innovation among cultures and across disciplines.
While at Yale School of Nursing I focused more on studying, observing, and further researching the mind-body connection. I completed my Master's Thesis on "Self-Efficacy in Diabetes Self-Management" researching the effects of family adaptability and cohesion on a child's self-efficacy for diabetes self-management and ultimately on their glycemic control. Findings indicated that high family cohesion was directly related to improved glycemic control. My time at YSN was rich with knowledge and empowering, learning from top educators and professionals across the healthcare spectrum.
Yale School of Nursing enjoys an international reputation for excellence in teaching, research, leadership, and clinical practice. The mission of the Yale School of Nursing is better health for all people. We accomplish this by educating each generation of nurse leaders, scholars, and practitioners; transforming health care practice; and advancing science. Building on the tradition of our founding dean, Annie W. Goodrich, the YSN community relates the “adventure of thought to the adventure of action, in touch with the fundamentals of human experience” across local, national, and international systems of care.
