Bayhealth Congratulates Inaugural Nursing Research Fellow

Posted:
DOVER, Del.— Kristen Perrego, BSN, RN, CNOR, clinical preceptor- Kent Campus, Perioperative Services, has been selected as Bayhealth’s first nursing research fellow.

Applicants must be BSN-prepared staff nurses at Bayhealth for at least one year, active in a nursing council, with performance evaluations that demonstrate superior performance.

The nursing research fellowship aims to develop evidence based practice for the patient’s benefit; provide Bayhealth with research capable staff nurses; and stimulate innovation and knowledge among the nursing staff.

Each nursing research fellow must develop a research project that will foster evidence-based practice on a patient care unit.

Perrego’s project is focused on infection prevention and the cleansing of high-touch surfaces. This topic is important for the surgical environment of the operating room and is also relevant to other hospital units.

She applied for the fellowship because she believes that there is a strong connection between nursing research and bedside practices.

Perrego joined Bayhealth Kent General as an operating room staff nurse in 2008. In 2012, she became a clinical preceptor. She earned a bachelor of science in nursing degree at Fitchburg State University and is currently pursuing a master of science in nursing degree at Drexel University.

Upon completion of the two year fellowship, fellows must demonstrate new knowledge and innovation through presentations to both internal and external groups.

To learn more about Bayhealth’s nursing research fellowship, please contact Marianne Foard at (302) 744-6463.
