I have been an advanced practice nurse for over 20 years. My academic preparation and clinical experience have served as a strong foundation for guiding students through their professional journey and career advancement. When I started my own nursing journey, it was with the thought that nursing was a caring and service profession for all seasons, irrespective of person, place, or time. The ability to improve a person’s quality of life and alleviate suffering, to lead, empower and advocate for others are fundamental reasons why I continue to love being an advanced practice nurse.
I want to share this enthusiasm by educating others to become nurses and advanced practice nurses with a strong commitment to lifelong learning. When students come and join the learning environment, I expect them to be present in mind, body, and spirit, not just passive spectators but fully active participants. Everyone has his or her own professional and life experience to share, which can facilitate learning and engage others. My mantra is a patient’s safety first. For the student, this translates to professional responsibility and accountability. I want to know that when students pass my course(s) and graduate from the program, they will be competent and skilled healthcare providers. I trust that they would be able to take care of my own family safely and equipped with knowledge based on evidence-based practice.
