Following her retirement from the Army Nurse Corps, she established the Center for Nursing Research at Duke and held the position of Associate Dean for Research for 13 years.


Dr. Turner’s research interests focus on the effect of nursing intervention on critically ill newborns, including exogenous surfactant administration, endotracheal suctioning, high frequency ventilators and airway management. She has published widely in journals, books, monographs and computer-assisted instruction. Dr. Turner serves as a Section Editor in Heart & Lung in addition to being a reviewer for other nursing journals. She is active professionally in the American Academy of Nursing, American Nurses Association, North Carolina Nurses Association, and Sigma Theta Tau International.

Research Interests
The initiation of and maintenance of respiration in prematurely born infants is of paramount importance for survival. My research interests are in three related domains that seek to further clarify and understand the interrelatedness of respiratory physiology, histology and anatomy in this critically ill population.
Specifically, my research relates to:
● 1. Establishing and maintaining patency of the artificial airway, the interaction of the artificial airway and the mucociliary elevator, and non-invasive assessment of airway position.
● 2. The effect of mechanical aspiration of the airway on physiologic parameters, particularly oxygenation and intracranial pressure, and on trauma to the airway both acute and chronic.
● 3. The role of exogenous surfactants on lung function, to include types of surfactants and methods of administration.
