I entered the profession of nursing by earning an accelerated BSN. I earned a BS in Business Administration prior to attending nursing school. I am currently enrolled in a BSN to PhD program. Recently, I was awarded an MSN in Nursing Education as I completed that portion of my PhD. I am a Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) and a Certified Medical Surgical Registered Nurse (CMSRN). My experience includes: Med/Surg, Addictions, Mental Health Nursing, and most recently, Nursing Education.
I also work part-time for the local health department. Public health is my second love, nursing education being my first.
I have a lot of interests in nursing. Before beginning graduate school, I thought I would become a Nurse Practitioner. However, after taking a graduate level nursing research course I discovered an interest in research- hence my decision to pursue a PhD.
I have a partner of 15 years and five pugs. All five pugs are rescues. So, as one can imagine, there is not much time to rest. I love AllNurses! I became a member while in nursing school. I received some great advice to my questions and it is my hope to return the kindness and good advice that I received here.
