Erin Hoying

I earned my BSN from Purdue University in May 2003.  I worked as a bedside nurse for over 10 years at Riley Children’s Hospital and Riley North.  I had the pleasure of working with many different pediatric populations including those with developmental delays, cancer, and intensive care patients.  In 2012, I left bedside nursing and worked as a Care Manager at Riley Hospital Children.  In this role, I worked very closely with medical teams to ensure patients had safe transitions to home.  I earned a Master’s in Nursing Education from University of Indianapolis in May 2015.  In 2016, I accepted a lecturer position at Purdue University.  I was promoted in 2018 to Clinical Assistant Professor, where I continue to teach.  I currently teach in Fundamentals and Pediatric Nursing. 

Research Interests

My research interests are social justice attitudes and how these influence caring behaviors in undergraduate nursing students.   In addition, the research of how service learning as a teaching pedagogy is an area of interest. 

Why Purdue?

The transdisciplinary focus at Purdue was the reason that I chose to pursue my PhD here.  It is great to always be welcome in different schools when I take courses.  In addition, faculty outside of the School of Nursing are supportive and provide powerful insight into my research.  The mentors at the School of Nursing are also invaluable and they are committed to my success.
