Christine Heid, PhD, RN, CNE, is a nurse educator for Integration Services at ATI Nursing Education. Dr. Heid holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing, a master’s degree in Nursing and Healthcare Education, and is a Certified Nurse Educator. Her past faculty appointments have provided her with knowledge of traditional practical, associate, and baccalaureate nursing education in both the public and private sector.
Dr. Heid has served as an advisory committee member on the ANA Workplace Violence and Incivility Professional Issues Panel, which focused on developing a position statement that applies to all settings where nurses work. As chairperson of the Ohio Organization for Associate Degree Nursing (OOADN), she engaged with leaders to help nurses further their education through seamless progression and academic partnerships. As a researcher, she has investigated online and technology-mediated teaching/learning across the curriculum, developed strategies to enhance theory-practice integration, created clinical tools for teaching and acquiring clinical judgment, and identified motivational predictors of persistence behaviors.
Her peers have recognized Dr. Heid as an “ATI Expert” who finds creative ways to utilize the products as well as assist others in their discovery of ATI resources. She admits that her greatest lessons, and the success that followed, have emerged from her biggest mistakes. She has implemented ATI resources in the classroom, simulation lab, and clinical settings, which led to better student preparation, helped foster clinical judgment, and improved student confidence. She is passionate about nursing education and loves the opportunity to share ideas and promote active learning strategies to enhance student and faculty success.
