Chistina Niles Beaudoin, a Clinical Nurse Specialist, is currently working at Danbury Hospital Emergency Department Crisis Intervention and the Community Center for Behavioral Health. She obtained her diploma in Nursing from the Jeanne Mance School of Nursing in Vermont, a B.S. in Psychology from St. Joseph’s College in Maine, a B.S.N. from Southern Connecticut State University, and an M.S. in Nursing from WestConn in 1991.

Beaudoin has worked in many nursing specialties, including Intensive Care, Operating Room, Pediatrics, and Geriatrics, with her primary clinical focus being Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing. She was a clinical instructor at Yale University School for Nursing for several years and was awarded the 2004 Yale University Award for Nursing Excellence in Caring in Chronic Illness. Beaudoin is an active member of several professional organizations, including the Connecticut Nurses Association, American Nurses Association, Connecticut Nurses Foundation, American Nurses Foundation, Sigma Theta Tau, American Association for the History of Nursing, and the Vietnam’s Women’s Memorial Project. Her research and scholarly writing interests encompass substance abuse and nursing history.

The history of nursing is Beaudoin’s passion and avocation. She has spent many years amassing an extensive collection that represents nursing from the Crimea to Desert Storm. Her interest in nursing history has led her to write, exhibit and present on the topic at local, regional and national venues. Her goal is to “turn on” other nurses to the history of their profession.
