Dr. Susan Fetzer RN CNL is a professor in the Department of Nursing at the University of New Hampshire, where she has been for 26 years. Her areas of specialization are medical-surgical and adult health nursing. She became Emily’s honors thesis mentor because Emily’s project related to her specializations. Professor Fetzer feels it is useful for students in her discipline to learn to write for Inquiry’s broad audience “especially if they plan, like Emily, to continue onto graduate and doctoral education.”
During her summer’s internship, Emily worked closely with two members of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Karen Secore, MS APRN CNRN is a nurse practitioner and coordinator of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Epilepsy Center. Dr. Barbara C. Jobst, M.D., is a professor and section chief of the Department of Neurology, Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth College, and director of the epilepsy center.
