Work and Education
Dr. Rossler joined Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing in 2014 as an Assistant Professor. Dr. Rossler entered into academia in 2006 as a Faculty Instructor at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Her work history in nursing education also includes a position of Assistant Clinical Professor at Texas Woman’s University School of Nursing in Dallas, Texas and Assistant Professor at Armstrong State University College of Health Professions in Savannah, Georgia. Dr. Rossler has over 23 years of experience working and teaching in the critical care hospital setting. She joins Louise Herrington School of Nursing teaching simulation and holds the designation as a Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator. Research interests include the effectiveness of simulation-based teaching strategies on improving interprofessional education and collaborative practice among nurses and healthcare professionals. Additionally, her research focuses on developing studies using immersive virtual reality-based experiential learning. 

Dr. Rossler’s Dissertation work is entitled: “Exploring Interprofessional Education through a High-Fidelity Human Patient Simulation Scenario: A Mixed Methods Study." She has presented her dissertation at international and national conferences focused on nursing and simulation.
