Her practice expertise is in the areas of cardiology, critical care, community and women’s health. Her program of research is predominantly focused on enhancing career choice, professional socialization and collaborative work environments for nurses and other health professionals.
Provincially and nationally funded research
Dr. Price’s research has been funded provincially and nationally and includes collaboration with the College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia, Canadian Nurses Association, Canadian Federation of Nursing Unions and Office of Nursing Policy, Health Canada. Her research has addressed many issues directly relevant to the nursing profession including recruitment, retention, socialization, mentorship, mobility/migration, interprofessional collaboration and respectful workplace environments.
Her research has also informed several practice initiatives directly related to supporting, ensuring and advancing the quality of professional nursing practice; from the development of ICU practice standards to policies for respectful workplace relationships. Dr. Price’s doctoral research on Millennial nurses’ career choice experiences has informed the development of a social media and web-based campaign, entitled “Be a Nurse”, which promotes an updated and positive image of the nursing profession.

She has served on many volunteer Boards and committees often in leadership positions, for organizations including Dalhousie University, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Halifax Community Health Board, the Canadian Association of Nursing Research and the YWCA.
