Assistant Professor - Graduate Nursing

Philosophy

I have always taught nurses returning to school, either for a bachelor’s degree or continuing into graduate studies. I treat students as colleagues and adult learners, unlocking their potential. My philosophy about online teaching is to engage the students in meaningful ways that unlock their love of learning, moving them to the next level of critical thinking and application in their career. I engage in life-long learning and encourage students to do the same.
