Dr. Lela Zimmer

Associate Professor and Coordinator, Undergraduate Nursing Programs
I began nursing with a diploma from the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Following several years of clinical practice I completed a post-diploma BSN degree at UNBC and a PhD in Nursing at the University of Alberta. My clinical practice interests lie in perinatal, women’s health and rural nursing. I have been a faculty member in the UNBC School of Nursing since the fall of 2000, teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Since 2006 I also have been the Coordinator of Undergraduate Nursing Programs for the School of Nursing. My areas of research and scholarship include inter-professional practice; perinatal nursing and midwifery; women’s experiences of healing following gynecological surgery; rural and northern nursing practice and education; relational ethics; and qualitative research approaches.
