Dr. Carole Howe is an integral member of the Becker College nursing faculty who has extensive experience in the field. She presented her dissertation work at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, on maternal postpartum adaptation among urban African-American women, at a Nursing Excellence Conference and has contributed articles to such publications as The Collegian and The Journal of Nursing Scholarship. In addition to her degrees, Dr. Howe earned a certificate in midwifery at Princess Margaret Hospital in England, and worked briefly for the Frontier Nursing Service in Kentucky. She has spent summers as a College of Micronesia faculty member and as a volunteer women’s health clinician in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

While she was an assistant professor at University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, Dr. Howe participated in curriculum development, including a bioethics course, and was co-creator of Positive Learning, a support group for English as a Second Language (ESL) students. In 2008 she presented the paper “Issues of Cross-Cultural Research: An Exemplar” at a conference for the Association for Community Health Nurse Educators. She is also a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Transcultural Nursing Society.

According to Dr. Howe, “The role of the teacher is to facilitate student learning; learning is a dynamic process that includes a partnership between teacher and learner. In the partnership, the teacher becomes a learner as well.”
