In order to prepare the next generation of nurses that care for the most vulnerable in our communities means that as a school of nursing we must be innovative in our teaching methods. To do this, we will work collaboratively to teach our students the value of developing habits of inquiry, providing evidence-based care, working in interdisciplinary teams, and upholding the values of the nursing profession. I am passionate about excellence at the point of care, whether in the home, community, or hospital setting, and I seek to empower all nurses to become their best through lifelong learning.
