Which classes do you teach online?
Why did you start teaching?
I enjoy teaching and interacting with students in the classroom. I especially like working with adult learners. I was invited to teach for the RN to BSN program many years ago. I was asked to teach students on site at the Miriam and it was a fabulous experience.
What advice would you give to prospective online RN to BS in Nursing students?
Know your limits and what you can handle in terms of class load, and especially take into consideration your intense nursing schedule, plus family time/schedules.
