I have taught nursing at the BSN, MSN and doctoral levels for over 21 years. I have developed numerous courses that were taught on campus and online during this time. I have worked directly with over 750 DNP nursing students on their final doctoral project as their chair, committee member and/or statistician. I have taught nursing in Paris and London, and I have presented at various conferences in the USA as well as in Madrid.
