TEACHING:

I teach at the VCU School of Nursing predominantly in the master’s and PhD programs. The major areas of my teaching focus on women’s health, mindfulness, advanced health assessment, and qualitative research. I am the co-director of the course Mindfulness for Healthcare Professional Students and a contributor to the Artfulness program at VCU. I am a frequent guest speaker in departments throughout and beyond VCU regarding both women’s health issues and the application of mindfulness-based interventions for various clinical and non-clinical populations. I serve as a doctoral student advisor and a member of numerous dissertation committees within and outside of the School of Nursing.

RESEARCH:

My program of research is largely focused on enhancing wellness in women across the lifespan, with specific foci on biobehavioral mechanisms (including epigenetics) of depression and stress and on the biobehavioral effects of psychobehavioral interventions and complementary health approaches for stress and depression. Thanks to funding from the National Institutes of Health and other foundation grants, I am currently conducting studies on the epigenetic mechanisms of postpartum depression and on the use of yoga and mindfulness interventions as self-management tools for depressive and related symptoms in pregnancy.   My research is positioned at the intersection of research and clinical care regarding the promotion of positive health behaviors & interventions for mental and physical wellness. For more information, see my research lab’s website: http://rampages.us/patriciakinser/

SERVICE:

I maintain an active clinical practice as a board-certified women’s health nurse practitioner (WHNP-BC), volunteering at a free clinic in Richmond (Health Brigade). I serve as a grant reviewer at the national level for various federal study sections (e.g., NIH, Veterans Administration), at the foundation level for the American Nurses Foundation and Sigma Theta Tau International, and at the university-level in the CCTR Scientific Review Committee. I recently served as the Director of Awards in the Board of Directors of the Southern Nursing Research Society. I serve as a committee member for multiple School of Nursing and university-level committees, such as the Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure Committee, the PhD Curriculum Committee, faculty Search Committees, and others. I am co-chair of the Perinatal Mental Health Research Group at VCU’s Institute for Women’s Health. I am an active member of the Society of Behavioral Medicine, the Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners, the Southern Nursing Research Society, the Marce Society, the Academy of Women’s Health, and the American Academy of Nursing.
