My nursing career has been marked by a passion for patient empowerment through effective patient education and advocating for social justice.I am particularly interested in issues of health literacy, culturally informed care, and improving communication between the public and health professionals. Social justice and advocating for vulnerable populations are areas in which nursing is poised to make significant contributions, and I find deep satisfaction in watching students learn how they can make a difference.
