Patricia Davis-Scott has taught Maternal and Women’s Health Care and Nutrition at Cumberland since 2007. She received her B.S.N. from Langston University in Oklahoma in that University’s first “bridge class” of registered nurses who held an Associate Degree but wanted a B.S.N. She earned her M.S.N. from the University of Oklahoma as a Kellogg Fellow, with a research project comparing the self-esteem of pregnant adolescents to those not pregnant using a research population from three ethnic groups.
In addition to teaching nursing at Rogers State College in Oklahoma, she was Director of Training and Technical Assistance for Prevent Child Abuse, Inc. in Chicago, Ill. As an administrator, she was Assistant Executive Director of the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission. She continues as a private consultant, working with city and state agencies to address the issues of child abuse and inappropriate parenting, including “training trainers”. She created manuals to use in the training facilitators and supervisors, which remain in use today. Although her clinical area of expertise is maternal-child, she also co-authored a manual on policies and procedures for obtaining permission for transplantation donors.
