Barbara St. Pierre Schneider is a student-centered, certified nurse educator who teaches graduate courses and mentors undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in nursing and other disciplines. She is a recipient of teaching and curriculum grants and has published and presented on the methodological quality of nursing education research. Recently, she published a book, The Shortest Grant Writing Book You Will Ever Need, to guide students and faculty who are new to grant writing.

Schneider’s program of research is focused on the white blood cell response to skeletal muscle injury. This program has recently become integrated within the U.S. military’s national security plan to potentially aid thousands of wounded or health-stricken military personnel air evacuated annually. Overall, Schneider has received approximately $2.6 million in intramural and extramural research funding.

Work Habits

Schneider mentors students who have a desire to become an intentional learner and scholar of a specific area of inquiry. She works by partnering with students to identify strategies that will support their goal of becoming an intentional learner. In working with students as scholars who are forming, Schneider holds regular asynchronous and synchronous discussions with students, encourages students to engage in reflective practices to advance their scholarship practices, and supports students in specific scholarship activities, such as presentations and manuscripts.
