Why I Teach at Eastern
I teach at Eastern University because I feel a sense of obligation to pass along compassionate care nursing skills to the next generation of nurses. My nursing experience has reached a level where I know that I can confidently instruct, mentor, and inspire students in one of the most honorable of professions--nursing. For me, nursing has provided an excellent opportunity to serve God through serving people during vulnerable junctures in their lives and nursing instruction is a venue through which to multiply my efforts and to pass along holistic principles of excellent care to my predecessors.
