I teach in the undergraduate curriculum, primarily with clinical rotations in the adult medical/surgical area.  I am a clinical instructor for NURS 202 Technologies of Nursing Practice and NURS 425 Nursing of Adults II.

SERVICE: 

I am a member of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) and an active member of the Greater Richmond Area Chapter of the AACN and am engaged with the Nursing Students Without Borders Program.

SCHOLARSHIP:

My interest lies in using innovative strategies to enhance student learning that prepares our nursing students for professional nursing practice.  I am also interested in improving symptom management (palliative care) and patient education for patients with Heart Failure, and improving the understanding of end-of-life care.  Additionally important are interprofessional education and practice, and health policy with regard to patient care as well as advocacy for providers.
