    • Biography

      Dr. Nicole Poellet (DNP, University of Michigan, 2016) is an assistant professor in the Department of Nursing. She has taught psychiatric-mental health nursing, both in the classroom and clinical settings, as well as undergraduate research. At the graduate level, she has taught health care policy and ethics.

      Dr. Poellet’s scholarship activities have centered on health systems and the translation of research into practice. More specifically, her work has focused on the role of communication and teamwork in high risk organizations, such as health care. She believes that quality health care systems are dependent on a smooth integration between clinical research, evidence-based organizational and administrative practices, and patient-centered clinical care. She is the recipient of the Edith Galt Morgan Award for Outstanding Research Project in Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing for her qualitative work understanding depression treatment in primary care, and the Beatrice J. Kalisch Excellence Award for Creativity and Innovation in Systems Leadership and Effectiveness Science. She also has a grant from the Ohio Board of Nursing to address the nursing shortage through increased enrollment in pre-licensure nursing at Capital. This grant has allowed Capital to increased capacity in the simulation labs, as well as to hire faculty to implement new course design.

      Dr. Poellet is also a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner. She trained (2004-2006) and was on staff in the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry (2006-2013), where she developed sub-specialties in evaluation, psychopharmacological, and psychotherapeutic management of bipolar disorder and perinatal mood disorders. She served as lead nurse practitioner for ambulatory psychiatry at UM prior to moving to Columbus. She has also practiced in a federally qualified health center in Columbus, serving patients with little to no ability to pay for services.

      She is a member of the Phi Kappa Phi and Sigma Theta Tau honors societies.
