I am a registered nurse who specializes in medical surgical nursing as well as health promotion and wellness. I did not start out to become a nurse. In fact, I taught school with a specialization in vocational education for 10 years before deciding to attend nursing school at the Community College of Philadelphia. My graduate degree is in Nursing Administration from the University of Phoenix Online. My philosophy of education is very simple…the more we learn the better we can live. Currently, I am an adjunct professor at a ground campus community college in western Maryland. I teach health information technology, medical terminology, and the science of health and wellness.
I am a fan of online education because it allows for meeting diverse people and learning new ideas from one’s own home computer. As an online student, one does not have to worry about daycare and working in your pajamas is the norm.
I am a certified school nurse, and I have been inducted into the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International.
At first, I thought that my undergraduate degree in education would be useless in nursing, but I soon found that I was wrong. Nursing and education hold many ideas and constructs that are similar. I have held positions in hospitals, nursing homes, group homes for children, and ambulatory care centers.
