Teaching Philosophy

I believe that Nurse Practitioner students bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their educational process. My philosophy is that they are colleagues, as well as students. While I have greater experience as a Nurse Practitioner, I believe that their experience is valuable and rich, and as such, I try to build on their strengths, rather than focus on weaknesses.
