Teaching Focus or Philosophy

Being a nurse is part of who I am; as a nurse educator, I facilitate students to apply theoretical concepts to provide holistic, caring and competent care to patients, communities and populations to reach appropriate health care levels. I value the human experience and believe nursing to be a dynamic process that bridges the theory-practice divide. My goals as a nurse educator are to support, facilitate, motivate and cultivate the ongoing educational growth of the students that I have the privilege of introducing to the nursing profession.

Additional Info

My current interests in nursing include disease management, health literacy, and technology in health care education. I also participate on several state and county cancer committees as a health care consultant in population-based cancer control strategies, chronic disease management, and community health education. In my spare time, I am involved in hospice and home care with my assisted pet therapy visitor, Dermot.
