I have been a RN since 1978 and a CRNA since 1982. I have practiced in a variety of venues but primarily in rural anesthesia practice. During the past 3 years I have worked as an Assistant Professor at MTSU school of nursing. I am in the process of completing my PhD in nursing education. My research interest is focused on the use of single-user simulation to increase decision-making and critical thinking skills in senior BSN student nurses. I have recently joined the STTI Technology and Innovation Task Force.
