Which classes do you teach online?
Why did you start teaching?
I started teaching because I love working with students and sharing what I know as I have the opportunity to influence the next generation of nurses.
What advice would you give to prospective online RN to BS in Nursing students?
This program is accelerated. That means you need to stay organized and stay motivated. There is no down time, so enjoy the off-weeks between sessions. Do something special for yourself.
