Jacquelyn C. Campbell, PhD RN FAAN

August 11, 2005—Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHU SON) professor Jacquelyn C. Campbell, PhD RN FAAN, has been named the American Academy of Nursing (AAN)/Institute of Medicine (IOM)/American Nurse’s Foundation (ANF) Scholar-in-Residence.   Campbell, an IOM member who serves as the Anna D. Wolf Chair at JHU SON, is internationally recognized for her program of research that has documented the physical and mental health effects of domestic violence, including abuse during pregnancy, intimate partner homicide, dating violence, and forced sex in intimate relationships.  

During her year in residence as an IOM Scholar, Campbell will focus on research and policy initiatives to increase public understanding of and attention to how violence against women is significantly increasing the risk of women throughout the U.S. and the world of both contracting and dying from HIV/AIDS.  Campbell noted, “This important intersection of violence against women and the risk of HIV/AIDS is key to addressing—and ultimately stemming—a growing threat to the lives of women everywhere.” 

Campbell added that the IOM Scholar-In-Residence program—a year-long position within the IOM at the National Academies of Science in Washington, D.C.—offers “an incredible opportunity to take my 20 year program of nursing research on domestic violence at Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing to another level of policy application.  I will be able to synchronize the influence of the IOM with my commitment to women’s health, the AAN strategic concern for health disparities, and ANF support of nursing research to influence research and policy directions around this particular issue and other nursing research priorities.”

Throughout her career, Campbell has consulted on violence against women for the World Health Organization, collaborated with the Medical Research Council of South Africa and other international consultations through JHU SON global initiatives, and worked with both governmental and nongovernmental agencies, including NIH, the Department of Justice (NIJ and the Office of Violence Against Women), U.S. AID, the Department of Defense, and the Family Violence Prevention Fund.  Campbell believes these experiences will bring a wealth of potential collaborators to her efforts while at the IOM. 

During her tenure as a Scholar in Residence, Campbell will transition from her position as SON Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs, but will continue to mentor her doctoral students and serve as a co-investigator on research projects with colleagues from JHU nursing, medicine, and public health, and with those in other disciplines and organizations.  She plans to use her opportunity with the IOM to facilitate these students’ and investigators’  progress in policy formation activities and to encourage policy agencies to take advantage of their developing expertise.

According to Dean Martha Hill, PhD RN FAAN, “This is a rare opportunity and is much deserved by Dr. Campbell.  The IOM honor bestowed on her brings the spotlight to focus on her critically important work in domestic violence and we at the School of Nursing are proud to share in the reflected glow of achievement.”

The IOM Scholar-in Residence program was created in partnership with the AAN and the ANF and is an immersion experience designed to facilitate nurse leaders in playing a more prominent role in health policy development at the national level.  The Institute of Medicine (IOM) serves as independent, scientific adviser to the nation to improve health and strives to provide advice that is unbiased, based on evidence, and grounded in science.

The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing was formally established in 1983—following on more than 100 years of Hopkins nursing education—as the eighth academic division of the University.  Today the School is a global leader in research, education and healthcare leadership and is ranked among the top 10 nursing higher education institutions in the country.
