I am mentored, precepted and oriented grad nurses, nursing students during their nursing curriculum, and seasoned nurses orienting to a new unit or hospital. I have oriented faculty coming into the education field at CSN.


DNP was done on research looking into how patient education in the acute care setting affects their readmission rates within the 30 days after being discharged from the hospital.
