TEACHING:

I teach across the spectrum of the undergraduate curriculum from the fundamentals level to the critical care level, with a heavy focus in the clinical environment of these courses.  I am an instructor for the Technologies of Nursing Practice 202, Health Assessment 261 and Nursing of Adults II 425 courses and act as a preceptor for interprofessional case scenarios working with students of nursing, medicine, social work and pharmacy. I also serve as course coordinator for Technologies of Nursing Practice.

SCHOLARSHP:

The primary focus of my current scholarship is developing innovative strategies for improving the quality of nursing education, particularly for senior-level students as they prepare to enter professional nursing practice.  I am also very interested in improving end-of-life care in the ICU and developing interprofessional education strategies. Currently, I am a participant in the VCU School of Medicine’s Teaching in Medical Education (TiME) Faculty Fellows program.

SERVICE:

I am an active member of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) and Greater Richmond Area Chapter (GRAC) of the AACN. I am a member of the Clinical Education Council at the School of Nursing. I continue to practice at the bedside as a Clinician III in the Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit at VCUHS.
