Academic Philosophy

“My academic philosophy of nursing education is focused on the ultimate goal of giving nursing students the knowledge and skills necessary to provide high quality, individualized patient care. Basic nursing preparation starts in the classroom, the lab, the clinical setting and continues with the commitment of the student to lifelong learning.”
