Through her research she has examined a variety of provider outcomes such as job dissatisfaction and burnout, and patient outcomes such as hospital-acquired infections and infection-related and other outcomes such as hospital lengths of stay, readmissions, failure-to-rescue, and patient mortality.

Her current research funded through the National Council of State Boards of Nursing examines the use of advanced practice registered nurses in acute care and associated patient outcomes, as well the availability of nurses during times of natural disasters and how the availability of nurse resources are associated with both nurse and patient outcomes.
