My hospital nursing experience has included bedside and administrative responsibilities. I have primarily cared for patients recovering from orthopaedic and bariatric surgery. I served for eight years in management positions on a 34-bed surgical unit. I worked with nurses, managers, and administrators while I was a Nursing Quality Coordinator to help improve outcomes through data measurement and analysis and implementation of evidence-based practices. I returned to the bedside in 2013 and continue to work as a staff nurse a couple of days a month. In each of my nursing roles, I have most enjoyed the opportunities to teach others. I was honored to join the faculty at the College of Nursing as a full-time faculty member in 2015.
