Frederick Douglass Scholar

Trotter, a Ph.D. candidate at Princeton University’s department of sociology, has a strong interest in how organization within the health care field affects the experiences of medical workers, especially women, racial minorities and the poor. For her dissertation, she is examining how the role of the nurse practitioner is changing the medical industry. Through her research, she is investigating how nurse practitioners’ presence could re-define what is considered medical work, medical expertise and appropriate patient care. Through her work, she demonstrates how changes in the health care field not only alter worker identities, but can also affect how people understand what it means to be sick.
