Nurse Legal/Education Consultant
My teaching Career has been highlighted by many significant professional achievements. Specific highlights include leading the development of a new nursing program’s curriculum at Navarro College and then seeing the first graduating class achieve 100 percent on the National Board Licensing Exam.
Earlier when I was at El Centro College I assisted in writing a W.K. Kellogg grant, andprovided leadership in the development of the Role of Nurse as Manger for Associate Degree NursingPrograms in Texas. When I came to TCC I was assigned to lead a group of faculty develop our transition role for students into professional practice. During my tenure at TCC I have had the privilege of serving and leading in curriculum development, instructional strategies, and program evaluation. I was awarded faculty development leave to work in the community, and develop curriculum as part of a national league for nursing project to implement community into the curriculum of nursing programs. It has been a privilege to teach most of the courses in the nursing curriculum during my tenure. I have been privileged to be awarded the chancellors award for teaching excellence. The only nursing faculty in 50 years who has been given this prestigious award.
As rewarding as these and other achievements have been in my professional life, the daily process of collaborating and engaging students in the learning process during clinical and class contains the true highlights of my career. Helping students by engaging them to gain insights into difficult problems or concepts, critically think and then observe their “Eureka” experiences are the moments that are the most personally satisfying.Teaching in both the classroom and clinical helps the student to translate theory into practice.
My personal life includes a husband of 44 years, and a wonderful son and daughter in law. I love to walk miles a day, and do yoga in my spare hours.
