PhD in Nursing Science Program
2022 - 2023 Cohort
Rose Feinberg graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010 with a BA in Health and Societies. She went on to complete a master’s degree in public health in the Department of Maternal and Child Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, after which she worked as a public health analyst at RTI International, focusing on access to health coverage and care for low-income and uninsured individuals. In 2020, she completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Duke University while participating in the University Scholars Program, which seeks to facilitate multidisciplinary and intergenerational collaboration across the university. Following graduation, she worked as a public health nurse at a county health department in Colorado, a role that deepened her passion for addressing root causes of maternal and child health disparities. In 2021, she returned to research at RTI and headed back to school once again. During her doctoral training at Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, Rose hopes to pursue research related to maternal health disparities and social determinants of health. She is interested in a multidisciplinary research approach that draws on expertise from a variety of fields – including the policy sphere – and centers the perspectives of individuals and communities most affected by health inequities.
