    Introducing Jean Scholz Mellum PhD, RN, NEA-BC, CPHQ !

    Jean Scholz Mellum is an Associate Professor at Capital University’s School of Nursing. She enjoys teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Scholz Mellum’s research interests led her to informatics in 2014 when as a PhD student, she attended her first Big Data Nursing Science conference in Minneapolis. With her role at the Ohio Nurses Association in the 1990s, Jean was a leader in early work to define standards and guidelines so nurses and nursing would show up in electronic databases. Her experiences in health policy at the Ohio Hospital Association and the Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence continued to highlight the value of the data to wisdom continuum. Yet she did not really know about the foundational Data to Wisdom Continuum until she was asked to teach informatics and technology in healthcare at Capital University. 

    In her teaching role, Scholz Mellum brings her background and experience to the classroom to prepare students for using informatics and technology to improve patient care. Her research on identifying standards and competencies for combining nursing informatics and practice has been presented at the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) International Forum (2022) and American Nurses Informatics Association (ANIA) Annual Meeting (2023). She is excited to work with the Ohio ANIA chapter on a mixed methods research study to identify what members and other leaders think are the necessary informatics competencies needed for undergraduate and graduate nurse education.  

    Dr. Scholz Mellum is certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for advanced executive nursing practice and was selected to the prestigious Robert Wood Johnson Nurse Executive Leadership fellowship. She is also certified in healthcare quality by the National Association for Healthcare Quality. She received her BSN at Ohio Wesleyan University, her MS from The Ohio State University College of Nursing, and her PhD in Nursing Research at the University of Cincinnati. She is a member of ANIA, American Organization of Nurse Leaders (AONL) and American Nurses Association (ANA-Ohio).
