"Born to be a nurse," Joy Kimbrell has always enjoyed taking care of others. In fact, during high school, she took a Red Cross First Aid course and set-up and staffed a clinic at school. She has been an RN for over 30 years and has had experience in many areas. Her area of specialization is adult critical care. Since starting her career, she says she has always loved teaching new nurses and helping guide them into their careers. Her goal in teaching, she adds, is to be a caring, innovative and creative instructor and to provide each student with a great learning environment in her classroom.
