Hello! I have been an RN for the past 28 years and have taught at Kent State University for the past 17 years. I teach part-time in the RN-to-BSN program and full-time in the Associate Degree in Nursing Program at the East Liverpool Campus. My teaching areas include NRST 10001 Foundations of Nursing Agency (teach class, labs and clinicals), medical/surgical nursing clinicals and lab for NRST 10003 Agency 1, and NURS 44000 Population-Based Nursing class. I have been a Board-certified Clinical Nurse Specialist (ACNS-BC) since 2009 and recently attained my APRN-CNS license in July 2018. It is truly a pleasure to teach nursing at Kent State University. Nursing is my passion!
