Elizabeth Tomaszewski, DNP is graduate clinical faculty in the College of Nursing and Health Professions. She received her MSN in Acute Care Nurse Practitioner from Drexel University and her Doctor of Nursing Practice from Chatham University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her doctoral capstone concentrated on the attitudes of critical care nurses toward rendering care to those at the end of life (EOL) in intensive care unit settings, and how EOL care education may improve those attitudes. Her work was specific to the challenges faced by critical care nurses, who historically have been charged with saving lives, and are now asked to provide comfort measures to those at the edge of life.
Tomaszewski practices as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner in the division of Critical Care Medicine. Her patient population includes both the medically and surgically ill and injured. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, Tomaszewski worked in both emergency rooms and intensive care units in multiple settings, spending nearly a decade as a nurse in the trauma unit at Cooper Hospital in Camden, NJ.
