Sarah Kooienga comes to the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing from Washington State University Vancouver. Kooienga has been a Family Nurse Practitioner for 25 years providing life span primary care to a linguistically and culturally diverse group of patients and their families in a wide variety of clinical settings. Sarah has taught mainly clinically focused FNP courses in FNP education since 2004.
Her program of research focuses on Electronic Health Record implementation in independent primary care NP practice, specifically in rural areas. She has experience in a number of qualitative research methodologies, including ethnography and narrative methodologies.
Kooienga has spent time as a visiting faculty in New Zealand and is interested in the international development of the primary care nurse practitioner role. She has functioned as an examiner for the Observed Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE) NP licensure exam for the College of Registered Nurses-British Columbia, Canada.
Sarah will be teaching in the DNP program-FNP option: the primary care adult, primary care for children, adolescents and families and health communication/informatics. She is looking forward to working with a small cohort of DNP students focused on primary care and health behavior change.
