Professor, Track Manager, Family Nurse Practitioner - Houston Center
Anne Floyd Koci, PhD, APRN-BC, cFNP, WHNP, Professor, has more than 40 years experience as a RN and 37 years clinical experience as a family nurse practitioner. She is currently the course manager of the Family Nurse Practitioner program on the Houston campus. After completing her basic nursing education at Michael Reese Hospital School of Nursing in Chicago, Illinois, she received her family nurse practitioner certificate from Indiana University Northwest, BSN from Tennessee Technological University, MSN and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner from University of Tennessee-Knoxville and PhD from Emory University.
Dr. Koci’s scholarship focuses on women’s health with a special interest in marginality issues and health outcomes of women with a history of abuse. She is currently on a research team involved in a 7-year prospective study of 300 English and Spanish speaking women in the Houston area. This study is funded by the Houston Endowment and entitled, “EVIDENCE-BASED MODELS FOR GLOBAL POLICY DECISIONS: OUTCOMES FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN FOLLOWING A SHELTER STAY COMPARED TO USE OF JUSTICE SERVICES” to determine the safety, mental and physical health, economic, and general functioning outcomes for abused women and their children following a shelter stay compared to abused women who apply for a protection order. The study is currently in its fifth year.
In addition, Dr. Koci’s research has led to the development of the Koci Marginality Index, a measure of marginalization. More recent research has focused on the psychometric properties of the Koci Marginality Index and translating the instrument into foreign languages for use in international research. Her research has resulted in many peer reviewed publications and a number of national and international presentations.
