I thoroughly enjoy teaching nursing and love nothing more than to see students in the clinical environment take their knowledge from the classroom and put it into practice! The most rewarding moments are when patients brag on their student nurse and when students master a new skill. Teaching someone to care for others is a responsibility I hold dearly.
