Dr. Tudhope’s research focuses on professional development for nurses and the development and design of advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) fellowship programs. Specifically, he investigates better alignment for early entry APRNs in community mental health with patients who have established complex integrative needs. To accomplish this goal, Dr. Tudhope examines development, design, and measurement of APRN fellowship programs to help ensure successful transition to practice. Dr. Tudhope serves as Principal Investigator on a study funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to prepare and increase the number of new behavioral health nurse practitioners in northeast Ohio to work in integrated, community-based settings.
