Graduate Student Supervision

I am not currently accepting graduate students.

Teaching

I began teaching for Queens in 2009 and joined the Faculty full time in 2015. Currently I teach in the Undergraduate Nursing Program throughout all the years. I coordinate the lab component of the Physical Assessment course for the first year students. I also teach clinical for second and third year students in the medical/surgical settings. I serve as a faculty advisor for students throughout their Integrated Nursing Practicum.

My background and passion lies in acute care medical/surgical nursing. I strongly feel that my role is to introduce and give students a sense of salience in the clinical setting. I am there to help them learn and know what to focus on in a sea of information. In the undergraduate program, we teach our students best practice and the ideal way of nursing. As a clinical instructor, it is my job to then help the students be flexible in the clinical setting while upholding a high standard of excellence.
