Teaching Philosophy
u Conceptoflearning:Ibelievethatnursingisaconstantmixofteachingand learning. I teach people every day: nursing students, new nurses, patients and their family members. I believe nursing students have successfully learned when they can teach others. I most closely relate to the constructivism theory of learning. Students learn by building on previous ideas, solving problems, and participating in hands on learning.
u Conceptofteaching:Nursing,regardlessofwhereyouare,alwaysfallsback on basic nursing skills, critical thinking, and communication. My role as a nursing instructor is to reinforce basic nursing skills, encourage critical thinking, and teach nursing students how to interact with the team. I am a facilitator of learning experiences, because I believe that experiential learning will have a greater impact than a traditional lecture. I am responsible for giving feedback in a positive way. My enthusiasm, positive attitude, and communication skills will help to create a learning environment where the student feels safe and free to explore.

Teaching Philosophy
u Goals for students: Students will feel safe and comfortable with me. They are encouraged to ask questions and relay fears and anxieties. I will use active learning strategies, like case studies, interactive lecturing, and story-telling. Group work and assignments encourage the student to think critically about the material. All students have the right to an enthusiastic teacher that tries their best to get the student to succeed. If they are having trouble, they will have a learning plan clearly defined with the steps they need for success.
u Professional growth: I will continue to work as a staff nurse because I have infinite more to learn. I will continue to attend nursing education conferences and read periodicals to improve my teaching technique.
