I have been teaching nursing at the undergraduate level for the ADN and RN-BSN nursing programs at Kent State since 2005. My registered nursing career started over 30 years ago. I have worked primarily in critical care and have been an adult nurse practitioner for most of my career. Outside of Kent, I am the co-author of Critical Thinking Cases in Nursing, which features clinical cases covering common patient problems that are intended to assist nursing students in applying classroom principles in the clinical setting and an editor and author for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment and Management of Clinical Problems.
