Marjorie McCullagh, Ph.D., RN, APHN-BC, COHN-S, FAAOHN, FAAN
Dr. McCullagh is experienced in teaching nursing at the undergraduate and graduate levels, in both didactic and clinical settings. Her methods accommodate learners from a wide range of learning styles, and include a high level of student-teacher interaction. Dr. McCullagh employs a variety of teaching-learning methods, including case study analyses, videos, gaming, and web-based technologies in both face-to-face and distance learning formats. Course teaching focuses on public health nursing (e.g., Health Program Planning, Implementation and Evaluation), core graduate nursing curriculum (e.g., nursing theory in advanced practice), and specialty-focused (e.g., issues in occupational health nursing). Workers are exposed to a variety of toxic materials and substances as part of their work. These exposures are prevalent in America, and result in heavy social and economic burdens on families and communities. There are few programs to control these exposures, and fewer yet have been tested. The aim of Dr. Marjorie McCullagh’s program of research is to promote health among workers by eliminating work-related toxic exposures. This work is primarily focused on toxic noise exposure and its multiple negative health effects among farm operators and farm and rural youth.
