Mary G. Carey

A critical care nurse by training, Mary G. Carey joined the UR School of Nursing faculty in 2013. Inducted as a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing in 2014, Carey's scholarly contributions have informed the understanding of electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring to help better detect disease conditions such as cardiac arrhythmias and myocardial ischemia and infarction, and on the ECG's use in predicting cardiac events and sudden cardiac death.

Recently, she has led a research team applying cardiac monitors to on-duty firefighters in the Rochester, NY, community to evaluate whether a more pro-sleep environment will lower their average heart rate and cardiac risk, and completed her second term as secretary of the International Society for Computerized ECGs.

Carey's extensive doctoral training with her mentor, Barbara J. Drew, RN, PhD, FAAN, a pioneer in electrocardiography, not only shaped her career as a scientist, but also enhanced her ability to mentor doctoral students.

Prior to joining the UR School of Nursing, Carey founded the Cardiovascular Research Lab at the University at Buffalo (UB). She holds a bachelor's degree of nursing from UB, and earned her master's and PhD nursing degrees from the University of California, San Francisco.
