Bonnie Pope, PhD - Assistant Professor, Nursing

Bonnie Pope was a successful product of Florida Atlantic University, in Boca Raton, FL, having received her Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctorate in Nursing from that institution.   Her career has spanned many decades and includes time as a nurse, a director/supervisor of health care services, and beginning in 2006 till the present, an Assistant Professor at the University of North Florida.   She currently provides community clinical over site for part of the Regular Prelicensure Nursing students and oversees their final community capstone project.   She also teaches the 5th  semester Community Partnership class.

 

Bonnie’s community scholar’s project has consisted of restructuring NUR 4636 – Community Partnerships, a course to formally introduce students to Jacksonville Community Council, Inc. (JCCI) (pairing the information from the nation’s health mandate – Healthy People 2020 – to the wealth of critical information JCCI offers). The purpose of the restructuring was to allow students use the Quality of Life Report indicators to better understand their community and the community’s strengths and areas for improvement. 

 

As part of UNF’s School of Nursing Flagship Program, each UNF nursing student is “home-based” within an underserved or vulnerable group in the community.  Bonnie is a proponent of this program and believes it is important to know the relationship between individual health and the community environment. Through understanding this relationship, students will improve their delivery of patient care as well as becoming a leader in the health care industry.
