I teach clinical sections in the undergraduate program for NURS 325 Nursing of Adults I and NURS 425 Nursing of Adults II.  I also serve as the Clinical Coordinator for NURS 325 Nursing of Adults I.  I maintain my clinical practice as a clinical nurse by continuing to practice in the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit.


I am interested in developing a program of research on the process of learning and implementing a systematic method for nursing documentation that is in line with the current standards of meaningful use and appropriate data input to address clinical quality indicators.  I will be investigating a standardized meaningful use documentation format for faculty and students with an overall goal of improving the quality of nursing documentation and potential for hospital/healthcare system reimbursement while decreasing the risk of litigation due to inadequate documentation.


I am an active member of the American Nurses Association, American Association of Neuroscience Nurses, and the National League of Nurses.  I currently serve as Chair of the Clinical Education Committee.
