I received my ASN and BSN from MSU-Northern and my Masters in Nursing from MSU in Montana, I also began working toward my DNP as well. I began tutoring in 2008 and then began formally teaching nursing both in face to face classes, lab, simulation labs, clinicals as well as online classrooms in 2009. I can tutor nursing topics including: Fundamentals, Gerontology, Adult Concepts, LPN Transitions, Pathophysiology, Community Health, Theory, Health Assessment, Health Education and Leadership & Management. My favorite topics are Geriatrics and anything to do with wound or wound healing.
I love helping other people understand nursing, I feel that with true understanding of a topic or subject, it gives people a connection to their work and to their patients. I passionately believe that learning should be fun, I have found that most people learn difficult things when it is in a fun environment. No one person learns in any one specific way, I can adapt my tutoring style to fit a learner's individual needs.
My interests outside of work include life in the country, our dogs, horses, cats and our one very chatty parrot. I enjoy reading, crocheting and puzzle games in the winter time; when the weather is nice and warm I enjoy camping, kayaking and fishing.
