The Purdue School of Nursing has embraced interprofessional education, or IPE, to both better prepare its students and push the boundaries of its research to improve patient care. Purdue Nursing faculty includes a sociologist and an engineer as well as psychologists, statisticians and public policymakers. Dr. Sara McComb, professor of nursing and industrial engineering, joined its faculty in 2011 as part of this effort.
"The diverse professional backgrounds of our faculty enrich our programs and infuse interprofessional educational and collaborative experiences within our nursing faculty," says Pamela Karagory, interim head of the School of Nursing.
