Eve Bosnick received her bachelor of science degree in nursing from the State University of New York (SUNY) Buffalo in 1981 and earned her master's degree in nursing at the University of Pennsylvania in 1986. She has more than two decades of experience in the primary care of pediatric and adolescent patients and their families, serving in schools, hospitals, and the community. Eve has been trained as a Pediatric Sexual Assault Examiner at the University of Pennsylvania. Since 1995 she has held a part-time appointment at the University of Pennsylvania as Associate Clinical Faculty in the School of Nursing Division of Family and Community Health, where she is responsible for teaching and training nurse practitioner students in general pediatric primary care and specialty adolescent health services. She is presently the primary investigator on a study examining teens' health media usage and asthma severity, and is an investigator on a study around obesity management in primary care at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Eve's clinical practice focus for the past 15 years has been the care of adolescents by providing comprehensive preventive care around sexual/reproductive health, risk screening, and reduction. Her publications include an American Nurses Association Independent Study module, "Adolescence – a time for opportunity" (2003); a video teaching the pelvic exam; and consultation on two text books.
Eve's philosophy of care is described by the biopsychosocial model, which emphasizes the relationship of psychosocial and developmental factors to wellness and in the assessment of illness. Eve says, " In 2010, the challenges to growing up to adulthood are far more risky than ever before. Teens and their parents need compassion, support, and coaching from their health providers to be successful."
Eve is the mother of two college-age children who she proudly admits have so far successfully navigated adolescence!
