Faculty & Research
With the addition of six new inductees, the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON) reports that forty-two percent of its full-time faculty are now fellows of the American Academy of Nursing (FAAN), recognized as one of the most prestigious honors in the nursing profession. Dean Patricia Davidson, who was inducted last year, says becoming a FAAN is a momentous professional recognition. “Each inductee has incredible abilities, and this unusually high percentage of FAANs is reflective of our school’s leadership in education, research and practice, locally and globally.”...Click here to read more.
Noting that 1 in 5 women is a victim of sexual assault while in college and that the perpetrator is most often someone she knows, a White House task force has asked a Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (SON) expert to help lead research aimed at helping to stop the violence.
Jacquelyn Campbell, PhD, RN, FAAN, a SON faculty member and national expert on prevention of violence against women and children, was invited to the White House on Tuesday, April 29, for the presentation of “Not Alone: The First Report of the White House Task Force to Protect Students From Sexual Assault.”
The task force also announced that Johns Hopkins is one of three universities “committed to developing research projects that will better inform their response to the problem and contribute to the national body of work on campus sexual assault.” The University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work and the University of New Hampshire Prevention Innovations Center will join Campbell and the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing to “lead by example” in the research effort, the White House task force said.
Campbell, who recently received the National Family Justice Center Lifetime Achievement Award for her efforts at stopping violence against women and children, will specifically study sexual assault among students who are intimate partners, including those in LGBTQ relationships.
Campbell said most studies of campus sexual assault have concentrated on acquaintance and stranger rape among undergraduates on residential campuses. Yet there is substantial evidence that at least one-third of sexual assaults among university-aged women (18-28) are committed by a partner or ex-partner; that few sexual assaults involving university students actually occur “on campus;” and that long-term physical and mental health consequences are substantial. “We are proposing a study to address those gaps and to help provide a sound evidentiary basis for prevention and response programs and policies that could be effective across a wide range of university settings,” she said.

Safe Haven for Abuse Victims a Life or Death Matter. Housing availability can mean the difference between survival and further abuse or death for women who have survived intimate partner violence (IPV), according to professor Nancy Glass, PhD, MPH, RN, nursing doctoral graduate Jessica Draughon, PhD, MSN, RN, senior research program coordinator Amber Clough, MSW, and a colleague. Based on in-depth interviews with IPV survivors, the study confirms the critical nature of safe housing and identifies significant barriers to it. One is a disconnect between local housing and domestic violence service systems. Over 2 million injuries are attributed to IPV annually. For some, the drive to escape abuse results in creative but ultimately temporary solutions, such as living in a car or an abandoned building. “From a public health perspective, IPV survivors need safe housing as a first step in recovery. We can and must do better,” Glass says. “Funding, policy, and service delivery must be restructured to better meet these survivors’ complex physical, behavioral, environmental, and social needs. With growing numbers of IPV survivors likely to be identified through [Affordable Care Act] women’s health screening requirements, the time is now for action.” [“‘Having housing made everything else possible’: Affordable, safe and stable housing for women survivors of violence,” Qualitative Social Work, published online September 20, 2013.]...Click here to read more.
