John T. Taylor, DNP, RN, CPN, CNE


My teaching philosophy centers on the role of the learning facilitator as opposed to the lecturer. I have found it necessary as a course faculty to provide activities which make learning meaningful and enjoyable. I fully believe that the more engaged the faculty member is in learning activities, the more engaged the student will be in their participation. In addition to planning appropriate learning activities, I believe that being active in clinical practice gives me experiences that further enhance my teaching. I have practices in pediatrics and pediatric oncology for the entirety of my nursing career and I maintain a part-time practice at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). This results in a mutually beneficial learning experience for all of the students and the faculty.
