Areas of Interest/Scholarship

Nursing education, ethics, rural nursing

I've been a registered nurse since 1983. I am passionate about nursing, health, and health education. My research endeavors have led me to explore rural nursing, rural nursing preceptorship, critical thinking and the use of mobile applications as well as when playing chess, online learning workload in graduate programming, and microethical issues in the simulated learning environment.
