I have 35 years of experience, and specialize in the field of nursing with specific knowledge in the areas of academic management and curriculum, performance outcomes and technology in education. I have published on such topics as technology in education, clinical education and leadership in nursing. I am the founding dean of a partnership program in nursing. This program differs from all traditional programs in that it “partners” with local magnet hospitals who provide the qualified nursing clinical educators for the students. Unlike many nursing programs, it makes a profit while delivering a high level of quality clinical education. There is a true partnership between the academic experience of the college and the clinical experience of the hospital partner.
