I have been providing direct patient care for more than 20 years. My work experience includes hospitals, nursing homes, and home health agencies in Tennessee and California where I practiced pediatric, obstretic, medical, and surgical nursing. One of my goals upon graduation from the BSN program was to teach nursing students. I returned back to school in 2008 to accomplish that goal after having a family. I have been at Cumberland University since 2010 after receiving my MSN. My career change to nursing education has been both challenging and rewarding. Students provide a never ending opportunity to see nursing from a different perspective. The most rewarding experience of nursing education is seeing the new student progress from unsure to confident during the clinical experience.
