Associate Professor Jacqueline Jones is a registered nurse (RN) in three countries across three continents (Europe, Australia and North America), which informs her nursing and research with a broad, international understanding of nursing issues. She is a faculty member in the Division of Informatics, Health Services and Leadership (IHSL). Jon>es teaches doctoral courses in qualitative research and the history/philosophies of science. As a member of the President's Teaching and Learning Collaborative, she is currently researching doctoral pedagogy that develops nurse scientists and nurse scholars.

Building from her PhD thesis, Emergency nursing and caring: A paradox or reality of practice?, she has a program of research that has two foci: nurses and nursing work and older people and health. The latter flows from her post-doctoral fellowship at the Centre for Research into Nursing and Healthcare. Both research foci have a strong emphasis on the complexities of the environment. Jones employs multi-method design approaches to knowledge development, supervising PhD students across these research foci and providing mentorship in the areas of qualitative research methodologies and grant writing. Her current research interests are the development of "the nursing dose"/"dose-response" and measurement of their safety, quality, and patient satisfaction outcomes; and the symptom of delirium among acute-care patients as "hospital-acquired confusion," and the role nursing surveillance has in its early detection and intervention.

In concert with practicing nurses, Jones has recently developed ‘The Practice Partnership Model’ of nursing now employed in some Queensland Health sites, Brisbane, Australia. She has a strong commitment to praxis and practice development and has expertise in evidence based practice and knowledge translation. Her contributions to the discipline of nursing include research that informed the National Review of Nursing Education, a unique joint appointment with the Australian Nursing Federation (SA) and Flinders University. She is also a past editor of the Australian Journal of Advanced Nursing.
