What inspired you to pursue a career in nursing education?

“I started my nursing career in 1986. I started out in Geriatric Nursing and absolutely fell in love with the senior population. Because both sets of my grandparents passed before I was old enough to know them, these geriatric patients became my “extended family”. To assist them with not only their physical needs but their emotional needs was extremely rewarding. I can’t begin to tell you how many life lessons I learned from those Seniors I provided care for. I believe they helped shape me into the nurse educator that I am today! I always had a love for teaching and once I found nursing education, I knew it was the perfect avenue for me to bring my years of nursing experience into the classroom and help teach, shape, and nurture our future nurses! I feel honored to be a member of such a great profession and a part of future nurses!”

What makes Arizona College of Nursing different from other nursing schools in Ohio?

What support resources are available to nursing school students at the Cleveland campus?

We have amazing skills labs, a start of the art simulation center, where students will have professional guidance while practicing all their required skills.
