Bio

Margaret Kearney is a nationally recognized expert in rigorous qualitative research methods. Before assuming other roles, her research centered on socially high-risk pregnant and parenting women's health perceptions and decisions. She specialized in naturalistic approaches to the study of behavior and communication, often relying on systematic analysis of open-ended interviews and observations.

As the editor in chief from 2012-2018 of Research in Nursing & Health, a peer-reviewed general research journal devoted to the publication of a wide range of research that informs nursing and other health disciplines, Kearney had an international impact on the evidence in support of health science. She has published more than 100 scholarly articles, books, and chapters and regularly presents at regional and national workshops.

As the former director of the school's PhD program and the current university dean of graduate studies, Kearney is focused on strengthening the quality and relevance of graduate research and advancing interdisciplinary collaborations. She has participated in more than 45 doctoral committees, and she is committed to mentoring students, their advisors, and faculty in research and writing for publication.
