Dr. Goodfellow joined the faculty at Duquesne University School of Nursing in 1989 and for the first ten years taught in the undergraduate nursing program; specifically, medical-surgical, critical care and oncology nursing. During this time she completed her PhD in Nursing at the University of Pittsburgh with a focus in psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) or the study of mind over body. In 2000, Dr. Goodfellow began teaching in the online PhD Program in Nursing. Over the years she has taught several of the core courses including Research Seminar, Research Emphasis, Quantitative Methods in Nursing Research, and Issues in Health Measurement. Currently, she teaches the Structure of Nursing Knowledge course and serves as chair or committee member of several dissertation studies. The majority of Dr. Goodfellow's PhD students have received funding from specialty organizations or foundations for their dissertation studies.
Dr. Linda Goodfellow was appointed Chair of Duquesne University Institutional Review Board (IRB) in 2013 and over the past three years served in this role.
Dr. Goodfellow's program of research is in psychoneuroimmunology (PNI); specifically, stress management in spouses of patients with cancer. Dr. Goodfellow also has considerable expertise in designing and conducting intervention studies as well as online survey designs. She is considered an expert in clinical research and reviews manuscripts for high impact nursing research journals such as Nursing Research, the Oncology Nursing Forum, International Nursing Review, Journal of Professional Nursing, and Applied Nursing Research.
Dr. Goodfellow was the recipient of the 2013 Networked Digital Library Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) International ETD Leadership Award. Dr. Goodfellow and colleagues built an International Research Team made up of both a nurse scientist and heath science librarian from Australia, Great Britain and the United States to explore the knowledge and use of ETDs and digital libraries among faculty, graduate students and alumni of schools of nursing (Phase 1). The findings of this funded research study have been published by International Nursing Review. Phase 2 consisted of a study conducted via narrative inquiry to further ascertain awareness and use of ETDs and was also published in the journal, International Nursing Review. In 2015 the International ETD research team developed a formal partnership and launched a new organization, International Network for Electronic Theses and Dissertations in Nursing (INETDIN) to enhance ETD development. Our interactive website and be accessed at https://inetdinwebsite.wordpress.com/ . According to Dr. Goodfellow, "Our interdisciplinary team believes that our research will radically change the way graduate student research is presented, disseminated and used."
