Dr. Campbell’s research focuses on innovative teaching methodologies and her increasing interest in web-enhanced learning and simulation-based pedagogy has led to research, publications and workshops on these topics empowering nursing faculty, students, as well as health care professionals. She is committed to mentoring the next generation of nurse leaders recognizing nursing’s role of developing knowledge, partnerships, and collaboration in an interdisciplinary field of health sciences for the provision of excellent health care. Her other research interests include lactation, specific to issues of breastfeeding self-confidence, recurrent plugged ducts, and hyperlactation. She has worked to develop regional, national, and international policies to protect, support and promote breastfeeding as a health promotive relationship between mother and infant dyad and the family.

Robin Kanarek '96 Learning Resource Center Project
Dr. Campbell's vision and work with colleagues at the School of Nursing at Fairfield University, as well as the remarkable support of the School of Nursing Advisory Board resulted in the acquisition of multiple grants totaling $2,514,714 USD, for the Robin Kanarek ‘96 Learning Resource Center to expand and develop simulation-focused pedagogy and the use of technology throughout the undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. Being an early adopter and motivator, faculty were provided professional development and encouraged to integrate the use of many technologies for more engaged teaching. Building the lab, including renovations to the school of nursing and a vision for the incorporation of this new technology provided hands on learning and the opportunity to present in multiple venues and consult with nursing faculty and staff development employees at universities, hospitals and agencies in regard to building their simulation labs and implementing simulation pedagogy into their programs.
Valuable outcomes of this Project have been the text, co-edited with Dr. Karen Daley, Simulation Scenarios for Nurse Educators: Making it real. (Springer Publishers, Inc. New York, NY, 2013, 2nd Ed); research projects on health communication, student medication administration, and international connections.

Women's Health Expansion Project
The Women’s Health Simulation Laboratory is continuing to be used for the FNP Women’s Health course and for the undergraduate obstetrical/women’s health course. In addition, staffing the Learning Resource Center with lab/IT assistants for the creation and management of scenarios was found to be of paramount importance. The university/School of Nursing continued to explore ways for funding part-time personnel after the initial project funding. The School of Nursing Advisory Board committed funds to support simulation development over the next four years, by which time the development of the resource center was completed and faculty development solidly accomplished. Long term plans included partnering with community organizations for their use of the simulation labs to provide staff development and skills validation for accreditation purposes. Finally, SimBaby and other equipment were used in simulations for the pediatric course and creating simulations that combine the mother-infant dyad adds to the integration of curricular content for faculty and students. This innovative method of education will continue at Fairfield University School of Nursing and has been greatly enhanced by the CHEFA grant received. $99,999 USD

Dr. Campbell’s teaching and research stems from her career as an obstetrical/gynecological nurse in high risk maternity centers in academic health centers, her work in the community and with grassroots organizations supporting and promoting breastfeeding, especially among marginalized and vulnerable women, and her work in a private breastfeeding medical practice. She is an early adopter of innovative methodologies and has taught at the undergraduate and graduate level in a blended course format, incorporating simulations, case studies, podcasting with screen capture, and personal response systems to enhance student engagement and critical thinking and reasoning. Her use of electronic portfolio's, portals for faculty development, and work with adult learners for continuing health professional education fits well with the strategic priorities at UBC.
Courses taught prior to arrival at UBC
She has taught women’s health from menarche to menopause, research, and health assessment at both the undergraduate and graduate level, health care delivery systems, advanced role development, leadership, informatics, and teaches using innovative methodologies that allow for engaged learning to enhance critical thinking skills; and practice of skills, technical and non-technical, with robotic mannequins and role-playing.
