Marianne Weiss, DNSc, RN, is a grantee of the Robert Wood Johnson Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative (INQRI) and associate professor at Marquette University College of Nursing. She is an active researcher focusing on improving patients’ experience with hospital discharge and the role nurses play in discharge preparation and the discharge transition. Her research on patient perceptions of discharge teaching, readiness for discharge, and coping difficulty at home following hospital discharge have highlighted the importance of inclusion of patient voice to improve discharge experiences. Her work has included a broad base of patient populations including adult medical-surgical patients, parents of hospitalized children, and postpartum mothers.
