My name is Korrie McFarlane. I have been an RN since 2000 and earned
my Bachelor in Science of Nursing degree from Grand Valley State
University. I also have a Master's degree in Career and Technical
Education from Western Michigan University. My nursing background
has been in obstetrics and women’s health and I have worked in a
variety of health care settings. In the past, I have also taught clinicals at
GVSU for the RN BSN program. I have been teaching at KCTC since 2013
in the health careers department and I currently teach the Nurse Tech
I have always had a passion for education. I look forward to each school
year to be able to give my students the opportunity to learn more about
themselves and explore what it means to have a career in the medical

I teach in the Nurse Tech/Patient Care Tech (NT/PCT) course of the Health Careers program. I have been a nurse for over 35 years and my specialties are Gerontological Nursing and Mental Health Nursing. My education is from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!), where I received both my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) and Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) degrees. In addition to my work here at KCTC, I am a mom to twin adult daughters who keep me busy with their lives and interests. I love teaching at KCTC because students get opportunities here that they cannot get anywhere else. Our NT/PCT students learn and practice clinical skills in our labs, then are able to go to the hospital setting where they are doing the work of NT/PCTs. The students learn what it means to be a healthcare professional. They develop the skills and abilities necessary to be successfully employed upon graduation.

I have been caring for patients as a Registered Nurse since 2003 and have moved into the classroom to inspire the next generation of healthcare workers. I am thrilled to be a part of the team at KCTC!

I attended Michigan State University for my undergrad (Go Green!) and I am currently pursuing my Masters degree through Western Michigan University.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two sons, thrifting, camping and being outdoors, baking and trying new recipes, and traveling when I have the chance. The two favorite places I've traveled have been Yosemite and Hawaii.
