Dr. Haley has more than 25 years of teaching, research and pediatric nurse practitioner experience. She is currently teaching on-line in the MSN Nurse Educator Certification Program and variety of other courses. She is Certified as both a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and a Nurse Educator.

Dr. Haley has multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals and presented her research in 7 countries. The focus of her research program is to assist parent caregivers to recognize and utilize their strengths as they provide ongoing care for their children with intensive caregiving needs and at end-of-life. She developed the Haley Transcultural Strength Assessment Interview Guide as a tool for health care providers to assess and build-on the strengths of parent caregivers from a variety of cultures. Students conducting research have also utilized this tool with other populations of parents. She has conducted international research to assesses if “new strengths” emerge with varying populations of caregivers. Through research she has demonstrated that the Interview Guide itself is an intervention that assists parents to value and utilize their strengths, and is currently investigating the long-term effects. Future plans for research includes, utilizing the Interview Guide with populations beyond parent caregivers and in a variety of cultures. Dr. Haley also enjoys taking students to Kenya to serve those underprivileged and suffering.
