Alaa  Edden AlBashayreh

AGNS Delegate

Hello! I am Alaa AlBashayreh, a fourth-year PhD student in nursing. I am also pursuing a graduate training in health informatics. My research focuses on measuring quality and patient-centered care in serious illness and end of life. I am originally from Jordan, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in nursing and a master’s degree in nursing administration. Before joining the University of Iowa, I have worked as a nurse in Jordan, and taught nursing at universities in Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Oman. This academic year, 2020-2021, I am serving as the Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) Delegate for the Association of Graduate Nursing Students (AGNS), member of the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB), PhD Forum Representative at the College of Nursing, and member of the GPSG's Interprofessional Development Committee. I enjoy my free time with my loving wife and two daughters.
