Back to faculty & staff list

My primary goal in nursing education is to prepare students to become excellent clinical thinkers through the integration of theory, research, and pedagogy. To that end, my secondary goal is to support, collaborate with, and mentor faculty colleagues to do same. Soon after my own baccalaureate education, I recognized that my thinking had been transformed. To understand that transformation and be able to foster it in students has been the driving passion of my practice as an educator and researcher in clinical judgment, employing strategies that support learning and the development of clinical judgment, such as active learning, case studies, and simulation.
