I'm interested in teaching students in acute care and long-term care facilities about the care of older adults. I think it is important for nursing students to understand how to care for this population since the older adults are the largest health care consumers. I'm passionate about creating a postive clinical learning experience and helping students become interested in gerontological nursing.
