Teaching Interests

  • Advanced nursing education is my passion. I enjoy assisting in the learning process of new NP's and watching them grow into the profession.

Research Interests

  • My research interests have changed somewhat over the last five years. I still am very interested in caregiver role strain in multiple patient populations; patient education and screening for ovarian cancer but am also very interested in and have published on vaping among adolescents and social media affects on youth as well as effects of cyber-bullying ad addiction. I am also currently investigating Hospice education in FNP programs.
