Academic Profile

The most rewarding aspect of my career as a nurse educator has been connecting with my students in and out of the classroom and clinical lab settings. Having the opportunity to serve as a mentor and share professional nursing experiences with my students has helped foster positive faculty-student relationships. With this, I have been able to impact and help guide their professional growth, academic excellence, and program outcomes.

As an Advanced Certified Transcultural nurse with varied experiences in the health care industry, I have worked as a registered nurse in adult care settings (acute care, subacute care, long-term care, school health) and as an educator at the undergraduate level throughout my career. My extensive experience as a nurse educator and nurse manager at a large medical center has allowed me to use the best evidence-based teaching modalities in my classroom.

I have taught courses in Health Assessment, Community Health, Medical-Surgical Nursing, Leadership, and Health Care for Culturally Diverse Populations. I have a post-master’s certificate in Nursing Education from Rutgers University and a certificate in Nursing Clinical Simulations from Drexel University; as well as a certificate in Distance Education from Thomas Edison State College. I presented on nursing topics and professional topics at local and national conferences.
