After 15 years of teaching with much of that teaching nursing, I can offer you a strong background in nursing: anatomy, pharmacology, Physiology, and pathophysiology. I can help you with concentration and focus issues, give you strategies for the different types of test questions, show you ways to relate topics together so that nursing builds on itself and isn't just a bunch of facts. I will give you a sequence to study that includes bookwork, some homework, watching videos and doing questions, . It's best that you have 12 or 16 sessions for the new generation test . It takes three sessions to do the testing questions. It takes two sessions or three sessions, sometimes to do pharm. Everybody needs pharm, and it takes two sessions to do priority and delegation . but if you have less time we will work with it. Other than that you can pick what sessions or what topics you want to do with sessions with me, and things that you don't have too much trouble with you can do a self study with your book, and with questions .
I have a BS in Health Administration, and nursing. MEd in health education, and a MSRN as a certified registered nurse anesthetist. I have a doctorate in Health Education.with minors in distance and.adult education. I have taught at Penn State University, the Pennsylvania and West Virginia departments of nursing, various community groups during the AIDS crisis, and numerous emergency health related services throughout seven counties In short, I've been around. In addition, my nursing experience consists of drug and alcohol corrections, Floor Nursing, surgical, ICU and 15 years in the operating room passing gas.
I also teach family nurse practitioners for their boards. I have talked about a dozen, and most of them have passed.. you can tell me what sections you want me to i3 prepare and teach for you. I have done already, anemia, hepatitis, serology, heart, murmurs, lung disease, Nuro, cardiovascular, and some meds. I need a little lead time for anything else so that I can prepare an adequate teaching plan for you. I really like teaching nurse practitioners but I don't have the expertise to teach acute or geriatric


Educationally my delight is finding a way to help you "get it". Memorization doesn't last. You have to truly understand the concept to be able to keep it, I will use any type of teaching I can think of verbal, visual, stories, projects, charts, metaphors, hands-on-whatever it takes for you to get it.. My other delight is working with marginalized people that others may not want to work with.. So if your orientation is a little off, if your mom doesn't understand your gender identity or if you're living in your car-no judgment here, who am I? Just bring your authentic self and so will I.

Hobbies

My nursing career has consisted of Corrections (county prisons) floor nursing, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, level ll surgical intensive care, community nursing, and level ll , CRNA nursing at several hospi tals. In addition to nursing, I spent eight years involved in vehicle rescue, high terrain recovery, and hazardous materials safety in several states. Educationally, my delight is finding a way to help you “get. Memorization doesn't last. You have to truly understand a concept to be able to keep it. I will use any type of teaching I can think of- verbal, visual, stories, projects, charts, metaphors, hands on, whatever it takes for you to understand .Thought I do believe in grading (0- 100 percent,“you are good at this”), just between you and me. This is so you know where you are and where you need to go. My other delight is working with marginalized people- those that others may not want to work with. So, if your orientation is a little bit different, if your mom doesn't understand your gender identity, or you are living in your car- no judgement here, who am I? Just bring your authentic self, don't cheat, and don't come to class stoned- neither will I. In my spare time I am writing two books: A horror short story and a novel about a queer girl trying to straddle both sides of the binary in rural America in the 1970's. You have to truly understand a concept to be able to keep it. I will use any type of teaching I can think of- verbal, visual, stories, projects, charts, metaphors, hands-on, whatever it takes, for you to understand. I do believe in grading (A- D; 0- 100 percent.) this is just between you and me. This is so you know where you are and where you need to go.
