College of Health Sciences
During my 30+ years in the medical field, I have had the opportunity to teach MSN, BSN and LVN students both on ground and online didactic and clinical formats, coordinate graduate and undergraduate programs, simulation lab and a computer labs, conduct research in nursing, publish in textbooks and articles in international peer reviewed nursing journals, leadership roles in academic programs, practice in administration and clinical areas in the hospital environment, and manage a group of private physicians.
As evidenced by my experience, presentation, and publication history, my nursing expertise is in OB/Gyn, cardiology, critical care, orthopedics, and pediatrics. Pediatric specialties include pedi cardiology, pedi ICU, pedi PACU, pedi surgery, and pedi orthopedics. Currently I am an online graduate nurse faculty, committee chair, peer reviewer, and guest editor of an international nursing journal, Tennessee Nurse Foundation board member, and a scientific advisory board member of an online simulation learning program.
