About Me

I believe that an education which is founded in science is essential for entry into nursing or advanced practice nursing. Nursing critical thinking is based on an understanding of normal function with disease as an abnormality in normal.

Students have great variation in their manner in which they acquire, process, manipulate, store, and retrieve learned information, and it is a faculty priority to assist students with the development of metacognitive strategies for success.
