She has two professional passions, one being adolescent health and well -being and the other nursing education.
Dr. Street’s global work involves the development and implementation of a nurse faculty education program in Haiti, where current faculty from public nursing schools all across Haiti study towards a Master of Science in nursing degree. Collaborating with Partners in Health, the Ministry of Health and the State University of Haiti, this project is building upon the current infrastructure in Haiti, creating a sustainable model for advancing nursing education and health care. This innovative model for nursing faculty development is setting the stage for outreach to nurses across the globe.
