Graduate Student Supervision

I am not currently accepting graduate students.


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 years of study in both the clinical and classroom settings.

My background and passion lie in acute care/critical 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 an instructor, it is my job to then help the students be flexible in the clinical setting while upholding a high standard of excellence.


My Master of Science research focused on, “The Effects of an Online Education Program on Self-efficacy and Knowledge of the Clinical Teacher Role: A Study with Nursing Clinical Instructors.”
