Eileen Cormier, PhD, RN, CNE is a committed educator and researcher who includes students from nursing and other disciplines in her research. Her research examines decision-making processes in a variety of contexts, including parents of children with ADHD, parents who choose to deviate from the standard pediatric immunization schedule, students who become pregnant while attending nursing school, African American women who have contracted HIV from their male partners, and nurses responding to complex critical care and psychiatric scenarios.

She also engages in collaborative research focused on deliberate practice interventions, mental health literacy, depressive symptoms in post-partum mothers and factors influencing child obesity. She has received funding from the American Psychiatric Nurses Foundation.
