In June 2016, my application was accepted to join the International Board for Nurses Christian Fellowship International representing the USA. This is an amazing opportunity to continue my commitment to international nursing beyond my teaching and writing endeavors. I enjoy chairing the Prayer and Care Committee with my nursing colleagues from Argentina, Nigeria, Bangladesh, and India.
I am an Associate Professor of Nursing at an ADN Registered Nurse Program in Newark, CA. I teach adult medical/surgical and gerontology nursing courses.
