I have been a nurse for 38 years. Along with my subject matter I include test taking ability, critical thinking, and how to think like a nurse

Methodology

My teaching methodology is based on an individual basis. No 2 people learn alike. I take everyone's learning style into consideration and base my lessons on that. If one method does not work we change it to accommodate the students.

Background

I have been teaching nursing and NCLEX review. I love teaching pharmacology, with medication administration, and dosage calculation, Foundations, and Health Assessment, Leadership. I love planning lessons specific to the class or student I am teaching. I tutoring and mentor on a weekly basis depending on the needs of my students. I am able to break down the information for the student to learn best. This is my passion.
