Nursing is who I am.

Since the 1970s, have practiced nursing at various levels,

High School prepared me to be both a Certified Nurse Assistant and Graduate Vocational Nurse.

The Catholic School of Nursing prepared me to be a Registered Nurse.

The University facilitated the Accelerated RN to BSN program and achieving my Bachelors of Science in Nursing.

The Health Science center facilitated my Masters of Science in Nursing.

Recently began attending a University with the goal of achieving a Doctorate in Nursing Practice.

When not teaching nursing, directing nursing, or being a student of nursing, enjoy my playground also known as South Padre Island located in Rio Grande Valley, Texas.

I bunk on the Gulf of Mexico among the dolphins, pelicans, fish, surf, sand, and sun.
