A little something about me:  I have been a nurse for over 15 years and in the healthcare field for over 20 years.  I am enamored with the field of nursing, have been since I can remember.  I love that, as a nurse, one is positioned to have such a profound impact in the lives of humans and in healthcare delivery as a whole.  I am particularly passionate about improvement and leadership.  My husband and I have three children and one cute pup.  We live in Jamestown, North Dakota.  My favorite things (outside of nursing and family) are reading, gardening, and learning.

I have the benefit of experiencing quite a bit of online learning throughout my adult life.  I know how valuable your time is.  As such, it is important to me that the courses you take are worth your time, so please bring your feedback so that we can make improvements.
