Student and faculty published in Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology

Arizona School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University 2015 graduate Amy White (Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology) and faculty members Dr. Gregory Schrader and Dr. Jared Chamberlain, published an article titled “Perceptions of law enforcement officers in seeking mental health treatment in a right-to-work state” in the Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology, (31)2, 141-154

The abstract o the article states:

“The high stress environment of law enforcement places officers at risk for a variety of mental and physical health problems; however, officers are reluctant to seek out treatment. The purpose of this study was to identify which factors associated with law enforcement officers had predictive value in the level of stigma perceived in seeking mental health treatment by currently employed, certified peace officers in Arizona. The factors included sex, age, race/ethnicity, years employed as an officer, size of the department, current rank/position within the department, the type of government operating the agency, and payment of union dues. The study included 454 participants. Participation included the completion of demographic data, the Self-Stigma of Seeking Psychological Help (SSOSH), and the Perceptions of Stigmatization by Others for Seeking Help (PSOSH). Using standard multiple regression, the most significant finding was the relationship between the size of the department and levels of stigma (p =.014); such that, the size was inversely related to the levels of perceived stigma. As the agency size increased, the perceptions of stigma decreased. Such a finding has several implications for law enforcement agencies related to preparedness and training.”

Argosy University, Phoenix Announces Nursing BSN Program

Argosy University, Phoenix Announces Nursing BSN Program

Program provides a blend of online and on-campus courses to meet nurses' busy schedules

PHOENIX, Jan. 18, 2017  -- Argosy University, Phoenix is pleased to announce a new Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program. According to of Bureau of Labor Statistics, the nursing industry is becoming more competitive as the demand for quality healthcare increases. Statistics show registered nurses with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing (BSN) will have better job prospects than those without one.

Designed for licensed registered nurses (RNs) who have earned either a diploma or an associate's degree in nursing, the university's new bachelor's degree program will build upon pre-licensure nursing coursework to help prepare students for professional advancement while meeting the goals articulated by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

According to the AACN, the primary pathway to professional nursing is a bachelor of science in nursing degree, compared to the technical-level practice of an RN. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) released a newsletter in 2013 titled "The Case for Academic Progression," which outlined how patients, employers, and the profession benefits when nurses advance their education. The report calls for academic progression with two specific goals for 2020: an 80-percent baccalaureate-prepared nursing workforce and a doubling of doctorates held by nurses.

Each nursing course at Argosy University, Phoenix is delivered in a blended format, a combination of online and on-campus experiences. Class is held on campus one day per week to accommodate the busy lives and schedules of working nurses.

"There is a need for bachelor's degree nursing programs to help both nurses and hospitals in the state of Arizona," said Diann DeWitt, PhD, RN, CNE, chair of the nursing program at Argosy University, Phoenix. "By focusing on courses geared towards building the necessary skills professional nurses require, graduates will be better prepared to advance their careers in nursing and meet the growing demand for qualified healthcare professionals."

The university is partnering with local hospitals and healthcare agencies to establish cohort classes at their locations. By holding classes at their sites, employers are better able to advance the professional development of their employees while ensuring the skills they have the opportunity to learn are tailored to the needs of their organization.
