Dr. Chircop's focus of research is on health equity in public policy, which spans the environmental and sociocultural determinants of health. Building on her doctoral work (Killam Scholar) on environmental health inequities, investigating intersections between gender, class and the environment, she draws from a variety of research methods including institutional and urban ethnography. Her scholarship of teaching is focused on the development of entry-level competencies for public health nursing, the development of a collaborative certificate in public health nursing for undergraduate students in Nova Scotia, and implementation and evaluation of virtual reality simulation for population health nursing education.
