Dr. Tate’s research focuses on improving patient and family experiences during and following critical illness. She is particularly interested in cognitive and psychological sequelae of critical illness. She has expertise in symptoms experienced by critically ill patients; with expertise in care of critically ill older adults. In addition, she has expertise in qualitative and mixed methods research.
Dr. Tate is actively involved in interdisciplinary organizations focused on critical care and has leadership position within the American Thoracic Society and the Society for Critical Care Medicine. She is committed to the development of successful research collaborations. And she is devoted to the development of future nurse scientists working with students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Lurking right behind the COVID-19 pandemic is another major killer: the seemingly unstoppable incidences of violence by Americans on one another. Most recently, we witnessed senseless shootings in areas including Atlanta, Austin, Boulder, Chicago, Columbus, Indianapolis, Kenosha, WI and Orange County, CA. Major cities are experiencing a steep rise in gun violence. My hometown of Philadelphia reels daily from violence. Innocent children are frequent victims.
The events themselves are horrific, but only part of the story.
OHIO-Nurses are up against major obstacles every day: workplace violence; burnout; unsafe staffing; COVID-19; and other traumatic events. Many of these have a lasting impact that go beyond the bedside, leading to moral injury within the profession. Moral injury, often described as a consequence of continual acts that go against one’s morality, is a phenomenon sweeping the profession, which is why the Ohio Nurses Foundation announced today the winners of a $100,000 award to support important research on moral injury in nursing.
