Kim has a strong interest in research and has participated in research teams with a variety of research experiences in End of life issues and vulnerable populations. As a member of the Idaho End of Life Coalition, Kim assisted in the development of a field survey assessment on Idaho specific views on end of life issues. With her interest in vulnerable populations, she participated as a research team member in a study of Somali Bantu refugees and disseminated there search in several peer-reviewed abstracts and publications including Advances in Nursing Science (2010). Kim also obtained a grant from the Office of External Funding at Boise State to study the collaboration of care between hospice and skilled nursing facilities which resulted in a publication in the Journal of Hospice and Palliative Nursing (July, 2011). In addition, Kim and colleague Jayne Josephson secured a grant from the Center for Teaching and Learning on End of Life Care simulations and has disseminated that information at two conferences, one of which was an International Nursing Educater Conference in Baltimore, MD.
