Providence Hospital Clinicals June 2020
I am the co-instructor of the Certified Nursing Assistant Program here at Mat-Su Career & Technical High School. I have been a registered nurse in the State of Alaska since 1992. I decided to become a nurse because it is a very practical career (and because my high school counselors pressured students to choose a college major!). I have been a school nurse in the MSBSD since 2009 and was a sub prior to that. School nursing is a multifaceted position in the educational setting.
My new role as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) instructor allows me to apply my previous experience into the instruction of the most foundational of health care roles: nurse assisting. Typically, individuals need a high school diploma or a GED to enroll in this type of training. (I spent $1000 on a 6 week CNA course when I was 19). Now, high school students are priveleged to have the opportunity to take this challenging course for high school and/or college credit. It is my pleasure to instruct students in providing the most basic nursing care with dignity and respect for the patients they will encounter.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
