Work and Education
This is Professor Rosonet’s first year teaching nursing at the Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing. Specializing in pediatrics, she teaches students through lecture, lab, and clinical settings.  Her lectures are informed by multiple years of professional experience as a certified pediatric hematology oncology nurse at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Committees
Professor Rosonet currently serves on the Faculty Affairs Committee.  She is also a member of Sigma Theta Tau and the Association of Pediatric Hematology Oncology Nurses (APHON).

Articles and Presentations
Before coming to Texas, Professor Rosonet was an active member of the Evidence-Based Practice Workgroup at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.  While on the committee, she presented at both the regional and national level on the efficacy of evidence-based practice workgroups in the hospital setting.  She also worked with the committee to receive a national grant to research medication adherence among teenage patients with acute lymphoid leukemia.  Her master’s capstone project was on compassion fatigue among oncology nurses, and she hopes to continue her research on that topic in the future.

Community  
Finally, Libby Rosonet is involved in her local community.  She is a passionate advocate for pediatric oncology patients and is currently working with Baylor’s Student Nurses Association to host a St. Baldrick’s Event to raise money for pediatric cancer research.  She also works to raise awareness regarding forced labor and human trafficking, by partnering with organizations like the End It Movement, A21, and International Justice Mission. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her husband and infant daughter.
