Teaching Philosophy
My teaching philosophy is grounded in the realization that our students are adult learners, every opportunity is a learning experience, and that learning is a skill and will be a lifelong process (humanism and pragmatism). My responsibility as a nursing faculty is to guide students’ professional and personal growth and development to be lifelong learners and to be inquisitive, empowered, autonomous, and confident.

Research Profile

My research focuses on methods to improve nursing care and patient outcomes; specifically focusing on patient safety, healthcare quality, infusion of evidence-based practices, and optimization of health for older adults. Current projects include 1.) analyzing factors associated with ECMO cannula site/wound deterioration and 2.) analysis of enteral nutrition safety events submitted to the National Center for Patient Safety (NCPS) Joint Patient Safety Report (JPSR) database.
