Professor Watts focuses on the implementation of best health care practice supported by evidence for vulnerable pediatric populations, especially those with chronic medical conditions and special needs. Her special emphasis is on best health care practices at residential pediatric camps and in school nursing. She has recently worked with Monroe County Community School Corporation’s school nurse administration and school nurses to implement the 1 RN to 750 student ratio set forth as best practice by the American Academy of Pediatrics. She continues her pediatric nurse practitioner practice at residential pediatric camps and retreats for children and adolescents with chronic medical conditions and special needs, and at Bradford Woods, which is affiliated with Indiana University.
