A student profile for Salisbury University’s Doctor of
“I have a special interest in trauma informed care, family violence and intimate partner violence, and was pleasantly surprised at the opportunity to travel to England to co-present with one of my professors at Oxford University,” says Christine Durham-Pressley, D.N.P., CRNP, FNP-BC, a May 2019 graduate of the post-bachelors to D.N.P. family nurse practitioner option.

“My D.N.P. project was titled ‘Novice Nurse Intimate Partner Violence Education Through the Use of a Standardized Patient Experience: A Quality Improvement Project.’ In a nutshell, we used trained actors to simulate an experience in which nurses were confronted with a patient who was experiencing intimate partner violence, and used this experience as an opportunity for education.”
