Bio

Dr. Michalene A. King joined the faculty at Duquesne University School of Nursing as an assistant professor in 2008. Prior to joining Duquesne University, Dr. King had more than 20 years of teaching experience in nursing. She taught at the associate degree, diploma, and BSN levels in several schools of nursing in Ohio and West Virginia. Dr. King is a Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) through the National League for Nursing.

Dr. King earned a BSN from West Liberty State College, West Liberty, WV and a MSEd from the University of Dayton. She earned both her MSN and PhD in nursing from West Virginia University. Her dissertation, The Experience of Choosing the Parish Nurse for Health Care Services, was the beginning of her research program in parish (faith community) nursing.

Dr. King continued her research program in faith community nursing since arriving at Duquesne University. She has received two grants to support her research, one from the Duquesne University Faculty Development Fund and a Center for Nursing Research, Duquesne University School of Nursing Faculty Research Grant. She has published 6 peer reviewed articles and 2 invited articles on faith community nursing and has another manuscript accepted for publication in November 2013. Dr. King has made 11 podium presentations and 10 poster presentations at regional and international conferences on faith community nursing and related topics.

 After completing a simulation program at the Laerdal Company in Texas, Dr. King began her scholarship of teaching in simulation. She has developed simulation activities with two colleagues at Duquesne. She has developed medical-surgical simulation activities for second degree nursing students and mental health simulation for junior nursing students. She has made two presentations about simulation: a podium presentation at an international nursing simulation conference and a poster presentation at a regional nursing research conference. Dr. King has co-authored two peer reviewed articles about her simulation activities. Dr. King is currently working with a national group of nursing faculty to develop guidelines for the implementation of standards for simulation for the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL).

Dr. King is a practicing parish nurse for the Wintersville Parish Families, which was the first parish nursing program in the Diocese of Steubenville, Ohio. She serves as a faith community nurse consultant to Robinson Memorial Hospital Education Department (Ravenna, OH) for their faith community nurse program. This program was described in an article in the "Journal of Christian Nursing" titled, Hospital Outreach to Support Faith Community Nursing (2012). The article was co-authored by Dr. King, who also served as the corresponding author. Dr. King was featured in the revised edition of Parish Nursing: Stories of Service and Care by Carson and Koenig (2011).

Dr. King is a member of the Epsilon Phi chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society at Duquesne University. She serves as chairperson of the Governance Committee.

Dr. King teaches in both the undergraduate and graduate programs at Duquesne. She teaches community health nursing to both traditional BSN students and students in the accelerated BSN program. She teaches core courses to students in the MSN program. Dr. King has served as a capstone advisor for DNP students since the first beginning of the DNP program.
