What do you want students to take away from your classes?
Why did you start teaching?
I was asked by an older faculty member who had students in my clinical unit: "You are so kind to the students and have patience with them. Would you be interested in teaching?" So I tried it and really enjoyed teaching in the classroom along with coaching students in their clinicals.
Why are you interested in nursing? What drew you to this field?
I grew up with parents in the medical profession and was exposed to taking care of injured and ill people from an early age; always knew I wanted to be a nurse from a young age and enjoyed helping others who were ill. I found that showing kindness and caring could always make people feel better and calm them when upset.
What do you think is the biggest challenge that nurses face today?
What advice would you give to those considering the YSU online RN to BSN program?
Just getting started is the hardest part. Get a calendar and schedule out work, class and study time for each week. Keep up by planning consistent days and times to work on the course. Utilize class readings and notes to be active in the discussion by applying class concepts to nursing and your own practice. Find a friend or classmate that you can get together with to support and push each other to complete each course and graduate.
