Elaine Doucette joined the Faculty as a Full-Time Lecturer in the 2007-2008 academic year. Although she previously taught both a theory and a clinical course at the Ingram School of Nursing, we were finally able to welcome her to a full-time position in Fall 2007. As of January 2012, she has taken on the directorship of the Ingram School of Nursing Bachelor of Nursing integrated program. She is also a member of the Centre for Medical Education and is currently a member of the McGill senate.
She has an extensive background in cardiovascular care, and during her graduate studies, she further developed this expertise, especially with respect to patients and their families. Her thesis was entitled, The Impact of Social Support on Living with Heart Failure. After completing her Master’s Degree, she worked as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Critical Care at the McGill University Health Centre. She then took a part-time position as Clinical Nurse Specialist in Critical Care at St. Mary’s Hospital Centre and served as nursing teacher at John Abbott College.
