Dr. Annemarie Dowling-Castronovo earned her AAS and BS degrees from The College of Staten Island, City University of New York, MA from New York Univeristy, and PhD in nursing from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. She was a Jonas Nurse Leader Scholar, 2010-2012. Her dissertation, funded by the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veteran's Healthcare, revealed the substantive Grounded Theory of Regaining Control that illuminated how older adults responded to episodes of new-onset UI during their hospitalization. She has served as a reviewer for Urological Nursing, and, recently, was appointed to the editorial board. She held academic appointments at New York University and The College of Staten Island. Currently, she is an Associate Professor Nursing at The Evelyn L. Spiro School of Nursing, Wagner College, Staten Island, New York. She teaches undergraduate fundamentals of nursing, medical-surgical nursing, and graduate evidence-based projects. She also practices as a Gerontological Nurse Practitioner on a Palliative Care Team at Staten Island University Hospital, Northwell Health. As a faculty member in a teaching-intensive environment, her goal is to network with others interested in geriatric UI/LUTS research opportunities.
