  • Personal Philosophy

    All people are image bearers of God and must be treated with reverence and awe. Nurses are knowledge users who help people experience their optimal health. As a professor, I humbly facilitate life-long learning, supporting growth and development.

    "Be joyful always; pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus," 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV).
