Eunjung Kim PhD, ARNP
Dr. Eunjung Kim graduated from Catholic University of Korea School of Nursing (1986), earned an M.S.N. in Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program (2006) and a Ph.D. in Nursing Science and Human Development and Family Studies (2001) from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Dr. Kim is a nurse scientist and active pediatric nurse practitioner. Her scholarships have contributed to advance nursing knowledge in family health, mental health, and parent training. Much of her work has been dedicated to uncovering the experiences and the voices of minority families who live in two cultures and experience intergenerational conflicts due to different rates of acculturation using Korean immigrants as an example population. She used this knowledge to redefine minority parenting and to develop a parent training program that incorporates culture, faith, and evidence based effective parenting recommendations. This program continues to be used in local Korean immigrant communities. Dr. Kim is the author of more than 40 articles published in peer reviewed, interdisciplinary and international journals. She also work as a pediatric nurse practitioner at a local family clinic.

What classes do you teach?
What do you love about the UW School of Nursing?
I love being a faculty member of the UW SON where enables me to do nursing research, clinical practice, classroom teaching, and community services. Great resources and infrastructures in the UW SON help me to peruse systematic research trajectories in promoting effective parenting and positive child development. Lately, UW SON is putting more efforts to promote diversity and to find equity within school. Especially, I love being involved with the Diversity Committee, which has been functioning as a center of these efforts; we have been stirring up dialogues by presenting diversity cases to faculty, staff, and students. I also love the fact that UW SON is in Northwest, where I enjoy hiking beautiful trails on North Cascades. Even in winter, I appreciate mountains, trees, and snows while I enjoy snow shoeing at Snoqualmie Pass. During summer, I go to Puget Sound to enjoy clamming, crabbing, oystering, and canoeing.
