Office Location

Teaching Philosophy
Susan feels that working with nursing students is a privilege and enjoys helping prepare them to be the best nurses possible. She gains great satisfaction in guiding and mentoring students in the knowledge and hands-on skills of nursing and in the art of human caring. Susan believes there is nothing more rewarding than to work alongside a former student who later becomes a respected colleague in the nursing profession.
