Faculty & Staff
Dal's Nursing Leaders
Dalhousie’s School of Nursing is home to respected faculty members who are among the world’s leaders in nursing research and education.
Our faculty is committed to expanding nursing knowledge, furthering practice and seeking better health care outcomes. Faculty members accomplish these goals through research, partnerships with health care stakeholders and by educating the next generation of nurses.
Each week we will highlight a member of our faculty at either of our Halifax or Yarmouth sites. Check back often to learn more about our team.
Dr. Latimer completed a PhD from McGill University (2006) and a post doctorate from Laval University (2010) in neuroscience. She has held clinical roles at the IWK since beginning her nursing practice in 1989 and these have inspired her research endeavours which focus on the professional and contextual factors that enhance clinician's use of evidence with the goal of reducing children’s pain experiences.
