Jennifer has been a Registered Nurse since 2002, having practiced in Iowa, Florida, and Colorado. Her professional clinical experiences include sub-acute rehab, acute care of surgical, stroke and cardiac patients, critical care, and most recently, cardiac critical care.
Her introduction to nursing education came early in 2011 as a part-time Med-Surg Clinical Instructor for Aims and the University of Northern Colorado. She was hooked! She fell in love with nursing education! She believes to be with nursing students, at the bedside, passing on knowledge and love for hands-on patient care is both a pleasure and a privilege!
In addition to clinical instructing, she team-teaches the Advanced Med-Surg courses. She spent a majority of her clinical practice nursing cardiac patients. She continues to be amazed and intrigued by the physiology of the cardiovascular system and the pathophysiology’s of the diseases affecting heart function. This is her favorite subject to teach!
