I teach in the Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) 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 at their local high school. Our CNA/NT/PCT students learn and practice clinical skills in our labs, then are able to go to hospital and long-term care settings where they are doing the work of CNA/NT/PCTs. The students learn what it means to be a health care professional. They develop the skills and abilities necessary to be successfully employed upon graduation
