When I was a young child I always wanted to be a teacher. Then something changed in my early teen years. I am not able to recall what, but I decided to become a nurse. I graduated from Nursing School in 1975. I have continued to work as a nurse in many different settings (Long Term Care, Acute Care, Private Residential Care and Corrections). I was given the opportunity in 2006 to instruct the Practical Nurse Program. In 2008 I made the choice to start teaching the Practical Nursing Program at a Private College. I have continued to develop my instructional skills during this time. Taking the PIDP will further develop my skills as an Instructor and benefit my students.

    Not only will taking the course improve your skills for your students, but according to your blog it will also marry (LOL) two of your dreams–teaching and nursing. Did you ever imagine that taking nursing will lead to such diverse opportunities? I bet your students will really benefit from you because of your decisions to try new things!
