Corrine Y. Jurgens

Associate Professor


Corrine Y. Jurgens, Ph.D., RN, ANP, FAHA, FHFSA, FAAN, is an associate professor and the Ph.D. Program Director at the Connell School of Nursing. Dr. Jurgens research focuses on biobehavioral factors underpinning symptom perception among patients with heart failure. To support judicious use of health care resources, the aim of her research is to appropriately stratify patients to self-monitoring or intensive/objective clinical oversight of their heart failure. A key element of her research was the development of a robust measure of heart failure symptom perception that predicts clinical events. The Heart Failure Somatic Perception Scale has been translated into several languages including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Turkish. Prior to the Connell School, Dr. Jurgens was the associate dean for research and DNP program director in the School of Nursing at Stony Brook University. She has broad experience in clinical research, education, leadership, mentoring, program development, and practice.
