About Me

As an experienced nurse and nurse educator, my teaching philosophy emanates from my personal experiences as well as from a primarily constructivist paradigm, viewing learners as adults who build on their own life experiences. I believe that students learn in different ways, and as such, it is the responsibility of the educator to maximize their learning potential through active learning strategies that engage and challenge them. The educator acts as a facilitator of student learning, rather than the provider of knowledge. It is the responsibility of the educator to assist the student with the development of the necessary tools to not only be successful in his/her career, but to also contribute to the future development of the discipline/profession.

Research Interests

My research interests are in nursing education, nursing education leadership, nursing leadership, and women's and infant's healthcare.
