Nursing has always played a major role in defining my life. I have been in practice for the past thirty three years and continue to pursue my career as an ongoing adventure. Whether in bedside clinical practice, nurse leadership or nurse educator role, I have always strived to model and reflect professional nursing accountability. Professional accountability begins with knowledge and expertise in the nursing practice area as well as incorporation of ethical and legal components.
Evolving times has brought us sicker more critical patients, implementation of enhanced technology, and more financial and political challenges in the overall healthcare setting. The current role of a nurse educator carries a critical responsibility of providing a foundation for the students that will assist them in pursuing their career as professional nurses.
Nursing education has such a crucial role of keeping the profession of nursing focusing on being not only the patient caregiver but also a patient advocate. As a nursing educator, I will focus on providing quality learning experiences that will provide the student with a knowledge for their nursing foundation as well as experiences that will support evidence-based practice, thereby teaching students how to provide quality patient care.
