Jessica Palozie


Assistant Clinical Professor


As an educator and practicing clinician for over a decade, the teaching philosophies Palozie aligns with are Benner and Bandura; the student’s level of learning is fundamental to tailoring the education. Moreover, leading by example and instilling confidence in student nurses is essential for skills and knowledge development. Nurses confront challenges with difficult decisions in a very different health care landscape. Therefore, the inherent importance of evidence-based practice must guide clinical thinking. Her research focus aims to explore the adoption of EBP beliefs and attitudes in associate-prepared nurses. Another clinical interest she wishes to pursue is investigating the screening of infertility in primary care. Palozie recently graduated from UConn’s DNP program and also received her MSN from UConn.
