My philosophy for teaching nursing is student-centered and dynamic. The teacher should be well prepared with content for students to learn, but also bring life to the classroom by varying teaching methods and styles. I am always open to new technologies to ease the burden and bring the joy of learning. I remember the fun classes as a student were ones where I was engaged, interested, and learned without even realizing. I try to bring some excitement to the classroom in large and small ways, from video clips, to e-instruction (clickers), games, and now high fidelity simulation.
My goal is to not only develop nurses who are confident critical thinkers and are able to offer therapeutic interventions to patients, but who exemplify professionalism. My hope is that nursing students will value patient caring, the profession, and themselves as future practitioners. My obligation is to tend and mentor to my students to help them on their journeys as best I can.
