Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), Frontier Nursing University, 2015
Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner, Idaho State University, 2011
Since joining the Nursing & Health Sciences (NHS) Division in 2007, I have taught a variety of courses in the BSN program. Content areas include medical-surgical nursing, acute care and preceptorship practicum experiences, preparation for NCLEX-RN and professional practice, and professional role development - nursing leadership. In 2017, I assumed the NHS Division Chair position and continue to teach various nursing courses.
As an RN, I practiced as a staff nurse in an intensive care unit. As an advanced practice nurse (Family Nurse Practitioner), I practiced in settings such as Student Health Services, an Allergy/ Asthma specialty clinic, and a Family Practice clinic.
I moved to Lewiston from central Oregon in 1981 and have lived here since. My husband and I enjoy traveling and spending time with our children and grandchildren.
