If it is Tuesday, it is time for Tuesday Topics.

College of Nursing and Health Professions hosts "Tuesday Topics," an informal, regularly designated space designed to connect faculty, students and staff and help grow the interprofessional community within the College. "Tuesday Topics" include sessions promoting CNHP's research initiatives, sharing scholarship on issues relevant to healthcare and providing guidance on best practices in research and education. "Tuesday Topics" are open to all faculty, students and staff in CNHP, as well as to our alumni and community partners. Not every session is for everyone, but if the topic appeals to you, please sign-up to join us.

"Tuesday Topics" are generally held Tuesdays throughout each 10-week quarter of the academic year. Participants can join in person or via live webcast. During the period of time Drexel University is operating remotely in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tuesday Topics will be offered entirely online via live webcast.

Details on all the precautionary measures to ensure our faculty, professional staff and students’ health and safety enacted thus far can be found on the Drexel coronavirus website. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we deal with this complex and rapidly changing situation.

Times may vary. Register to receive the specific zoom link and passcode.

Upcoming Events

ETHICALLY SPEAKING: Case Study on the Role of the Mentor

December 6, 2022 • 12–1 p.m.
In Person, Health Sciences Building Room 3W02 or Via Zoom

As a part of our ongoing “Ethically Speaking” series, this session will support faculty, students and staff who must demonstrate continuing education in the ethical conduct of research with human subjects. According to the NIH: The responsible conduct of research (RCR) is essential to good science. RCR promotes the aims of scientific inquiry, fosters a research environment that enables scientists to work together toward common goals and promotes public confidence in scientific knowledge and progress for the public good. However, there are several serious detrimental effects of research not conducted ethically and responsibly. This RCR training is provided to our students, postdoctoral research fellows, research faculty and staff to ensure we are in continual conversation to develop and maintain a culture of scientific integrity.

For more information on past Tuesday Topics discussing responsible conduct of research, visit the Ethically Speaking playlist on the CNHP YouTube Channel.

  • Rose Ann DiMaria-Ghalili, PHD, RN, FASPEN, FAAN, FGSA, senior associate dean of Research; professor, Nursing

CNHP’s Tuesday Topics: Together We Share

January 17, 2022 • 12–1 p.m.
In Person, Health Sciences Building Room TBD or Via Zoom

The College of Nursing and Health Professions’ Tuesday Topics series enters its 5th year of events. Initiated on Tuesday, October 30, 2018, Tuesday Topics was created as an informal, regularly designated space designed to connect faculty, students and staff and help grow the interprofessional community within the College.

Our college is a dynamic place. Our students, faculty and staff are engaged in teaching and learning, advancing science and collaborating in the communities in which we serve all the time. In such a busy environment, some continual challenges arise like, "Who else might be having the same issues our group is experiencing, and how did others approach them?" and “How do we attract the right audience when we want to share successes?”

Come learn about how we organize and promote events, showcase some highlights of what we have learned and share what we have planned for the weeks and months ahead.

If it is Tuesday, it is time for Tuesday Topics.


  • Darin Dunston, BFA, assistant director, PhD Programs and Interprofessional Education; producer, Tuesday Topics


  • J. Darius Greene, director of Retention, Recruitment and Alumni Engagement, CNHP Student Services

All are welcome! This session is ideal for anyone who wants to improve their communication skills. Presented by CNHP’s Tuesday Topics.

Integrating simulation activities into the curriculum can be challenging, and using the SIMZONES framework to support learner readiness to be in each learning environment is a critical step for success for faculty and learner. This presentation will introduce SIMZONES and how it can be applied in the academic setting. Faculty will have the opportunity to work in small groups to apply and brainstorm next steps in curriculum integration.
