Areas of Research, Teaching , And Clinical Expertise and Scholarship

Dr. Richard's research interests include creative thinking ability and its use by nurses, technology, and evaluation. Currently, she is involved in research associated with online courses and information technology. She received funding from the RGK Foundation of Austin, Texas to develop the "Nursing Web-Based Distance Education Program" which provided much of the foundation for the web-based programs at the SON. Another funded project was "Improving Student Retention in a BSN Program Using Information Technology." This study was designed to investigate the use of personal digital assistants (PDAs) in an undergraduate program for information retrieval and the effect of technology, organizational and time management skills on the retention rate of students. "Regional Innovations in Nursing Education" investigated the feasibility of regionalizing certain functions performed by all schools of nursing in the region to determine if productivity and cost savings to the faculty and school can be achieved by sharing of resources. Most recently a grant, "Statewide Clinical Placements" provided resources to assist two regions in Texas with implementation of the Centralized Clinical Placement System. Continued enhancement and evaluation of the system for increasing the capacity of nursing school enrollments and the workforce in Texas are ongoing.

In addition to her nursing preparation, Dr. Richard has experience in computer functions, applications, and information management as well. She has oversight for the School of Nursing Multimedia Lab which facilitates the integrated testing and scoring programs for all courses in the SON; develops the SON website and intranet; facilitates the faculty/staff to students electronic mail communication; coordinates the computer literacy activities of the faculty and staff; manages the integrated database. Additionally, she has oversight of the Nursing Simulation Center that supports student learning through virtual and mechanical simulation. Dr. Richard has been involved with and consulted on other projects with regard to information technology across campus. She serves on several university committees and taskforces involving information and web-based technology affecting employees and students, and works with the Greater Houston Partnership to promote nursing education regionally.
