Teaching & Work Experience
I have worked in the hospital setting as a staff nurse for 14 years. Primarily, I have worked in Women's Health (OB/L&D/Nursery) and Ambulatory Surgery. Also, I was a part of the grief support team.
Currently, I am teaching in Nursing Fundamentals, Pediatrics, Obstetrics.
I want to empower students to think critically and utilize evidence based care as they work toward their nursing degree. I believe that my role is to act as a guide and facilitate active learning for all nursing students. The use of innovative teaching strategies such as interactive labs, simulations, and clinical are strategies employed to help nursing students grow and succeed as future nurses.
For me, one of the best parts of nursing is working collaboratively with your coworkers and physicians to create the best outcomes possible for your patients. Furthermore, sharing critical knowledge with your patient, their family and support system to aid their transition from hospital to home is immensely rewarding.
