Congratulations Dr. Robyn Rice, pictured below left, Dr. Marty Spies, below center, and Joyce Hunter, below right, for being awarded the first ever Phi Pi Research grant!  For a description of her research, see below.

 

Research Team:  Dr. Robyn Rice PhD RN (PI) Associate Professor: Chamberlain College of Nursing Post licensure Online; Joyce Hunter MSN RN: Visiting Professor Chamberlain College of Nursing-St. Louis; Dr. Marty Spies-Professor: Chamberlain College of Nursing-St. Louis

Title of the Study: The Ontology of Crayons and Paper:  Does Art Therapy Promote Therapeutic Communication Between Undergraduate Nursing Students and Mental Health Patients?

Brief Overview of the Study: The purpose of this study is to explore how undergraduate student nurses develop a therapeutic relationship with mental health patients using art therapy to facilitate communication. This is a qualitative exploratory study using principles of grounded theory.  The method is a semi-structure interview administered to undergraduate nursing students as focus groups.  Art Therapy is a recognized method of promoting mental health.  To date, no research has been done to investigate how student nurses develop a therapeutic relationship with mental health patients using art therapy to facilitate communication.  Additionally, although student nurses are exposed to art therapy in the clinical setting it is not a part of intentional nursing curriculum training as a communication technique-skill.  Hence, this gap clearly indicates a justification for this research as a basis for future curriculum recommendations in holistic nursing scholarship and education.

Brief Bio of Dr. Robyn Rice:  Dr. Rice has taught and practiced nursing for over 25 years.  She has authored numerous articles and six textbooks several of which are in foreign translations.  Aside from nursing education, her areas of expertise are public policy and home care.  She has presented at national and international conferences and key noted for state home care conferences. Dr. Rice currently serves on the peer review board for the Journal of Nursing Education.  She currently teaches healthcare policy for Chamberlain College of Nursing MSN Online.

    Hello Esteemed Members,

    I have seen many issues about not receiving certificates after joining our Phi Pi chapter. I have been in contact with STTI at the national level and it appears they had some computer glitch impacting certificates. They send sincere apologies for any certificate issues and have fixed the glitch. If you have not received yours and it has been more than 60 days, please use one of these methods to contact STTI: email: memserv@stti.org or call 888.634.7575.

    Thank you and again we are very sorry!
