Teaching

My teaching has been in the undergraduate program since I joined Queen's University in 1982.  The focus of my teaching has been in the area of acute medical-surgical care. I have taught and supervised students over the years on a variety of surgical units at both Hotel Dieu Hospital and Kingston General Hospital. For many years I taught groups of students on Connell 9, a general/vascular surgical unit at KGH. In addition, I have had responsibilities of being course coordinator in a variety  of nursing coures in both second and third years of the undergraduate program.

The current courses I am teaching can be found below:
