Carol Roye

Dr. Carol Roye, R.N., Ed.D., Health Education, Columbia University Teachers College; M.S., Nursing, Columbia University School of Nursing, is Professor of Nursing at Hunter College, City University of New York (CUNY), with a dual appointment in Nursing and Urban Public Health. Prior to coming to Hunter, Dr. Roye was Assistant Professor of Nursing at Columbia University School of Nursing. She teaches courses in pediatric primary care nursing, health promotion and disease prevention for advanced practice nurses, women’s health, maternal/child health, and HIV/AIDS. Dr. Roye's research focuses on adolescent reproductive health, and she is known for her expertise in working with the mothers of pregnant and parenting teens in order to improve outcomes for their daughters. She has studied HIV/AIDS prevention in adolescent girls, teen pregnancy prevention, and the effect of advanced provision of emergency contraception on condom use by teenage girls. She was the principal investigator of “Dual Methods of Protection from Pregnancies and STDs/HIV,” a National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR)-funded randomized clinical trial testing the efficacy of two interventions to promote dual method use (condoms and hormonal contraception) by urban adolescent African-American and Latina women. Dr. Roye is the author of over 20 publications on a range of topics in adolescent reproductive health, including teen pregnancy, Pap smear screening, emergency contraception and HIV prevention, and has presented at numerous national and international conferences. She has been a reviewer for a number of major health publications, including American Journal of Public Health, Pediatrics, Adolescence, and The Journal of Adolescent Health and Preventive Medicine - An International Journal. She is also the co-editor of Adolescent Sexual Development and Sexuality: Assessment and Interventions, a book for clinicians who care for adolescents. In addition, Dr. Roye is a pediatric nurse practitioner, maintaining a clinical practice in adolescent health in a community-based pediatric office in Washington Heights, where she provides primary care, principally reproductive health care, to adolescent girls. Dr. Roye’s prior clinical experience includes working in school-based health centers: she implemented reproductive health services in an intermediate school school-based clinic where those services previously had not been available, and she was the nurse practitioner in a program providing primary care and reproductive health care to teenage mothers and their babies, where she taught classes in the adolescent prenatal clinic and was the primary care provider for the young mothers and their babies for at least the first two years of the child’s life.
