Monica Satterwhite


Joined Cumberland University: 2012


Monica Satterwhite joined CU School of Nursing as an online adjunct faculty instructor in 2011. She enjoys the virtual online classroom environment. It is a different type of learning experience for the students. Many students are returning to pursue their BSN degree, after working for many years in the nursing profession. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with them. She enjoys challenging students to reach their full potential.

Prior to joining CU, she has the opportunity to work as an adjunct clinical instructor with Belmont University in Nashville, TN. She has over 20 years of experience in multiple areas of nursing. She graduated from nurse practitioner school in 2011, and since that time she has had the opportunity to serve PT's and their families on a different level; as a primary care provider. She enjoys interacting with people from all walks of life. She considers herself a lifetime learner, and is eager to share her experiences.

In her leisure time she enjoys swimming, time with family, reading, cooking, volunteering as a Girl Scout troop leader, and traveling.
