What inspired you to pursue a career in nursing education?

“During my early childhood years, I witnessed the care of elderly grandparents in our home. This experience led me to pursue volunteering at the hospital during my teenage years. Shortly thereafter, I took a part time job as a nursing assistant and entered a BSN pre-licensure program. I worked throughout nursing school as a nursing assistant. This served two purposes, it allowed me extra clinical experiences with wonderful RN mentors and provided funding to pay for nursing school. These collective experiences inspired me to become a RN. I have been a RN for more than 40 years and it has offered a wonderful diversity in the many roles that I have had throughout my career.”
