Diane Boyle: Wyoming Excellence Chair in Nursing

Diane Boyle, PhD, RN

Diane Boyle, a prolific researcher and award-winning teacher, is the first excellence chair at the FWWSON. Her appointment through UW’s Excellence in Higher Education Endowment began August 2013. Boyle was deputy director and co-principal investigator of the National Database of Quality Indicators® (NDNQI®) at the University of Kansas School of Nursing, where she has been a faculty member since 1994. “Dr. Boyle brings to UW significant expertise in health outcomes, patient safety, nursing quality indicators, nursing workforce issues and health care work environments – areas that are very important for the school, college, and the state of Wyoming,” say Dean Mary Burman.

At UW, Boyle will teach health outcomes and nursing quality indicators to both undergraduate and graduate students, and will provide instruction on research methodologies to doctoral students. She also will lead a team of researchers to examine differences in nursing quality between rural and urban hospitals, and will determine what nursing workforce attributes are associated with good patient outcomes in rural hospitals.”
