I have been teaching in the Faculty of Nursing since 2004, and have also taught with MacEwan University and Mount Royal University. My focus areas are community health and perinatal nursing, and I teach lecture, lab and clinical in these areas. What I like best about teaching in nursing education is seeing students develop an appreciation for the role of the professional nurse and for person-centered care. With society changing at a seemingly ever-increasing pace, breadth and depth, registered nurses must prepare for the future while being grounded in our values, ethics and standards that support the optimal well-being and self-determination of those in our care.
NURS 323 - Community Nursing through the Lifespan
The course covers theories, ethics and evidence-informed approaches to community health nursing including primary health care, population health, health maintenance and promotion, and disease and injury prevention. It includes exploration of concepts of community- based assessment, planning, intervention and evaluation with community-as-client. The practicum portion of the course includes a variety of community settings. Nursing practice will include health assessment and interventions for clients throughout the lifespan and care continuum. Clinical hours listed are the total number of hours and will be offered over 6 weeks. Note: Available only to nursing students in the Collaborative/Honors Program or Bilingual Program. Prerequisites: NURS 216, NURS 224, and NURS 225.
