Professor Boger utilizes a variety of teaching techniques to foster learning and critical thinking in both the traditional classroom and clinical settings. She enjoys building positive relationships and encouraging students to become caring and intelligent caregivers.

Professor Boger finds that the best part of being a nurse is not only caring for patients, but also their family. She finds it rewarding to not only care for someone physically, but also spiritually.
