While I have significant experience in health care practice (I'm a Registered Nurse, Family Nurse Practitioner, and Physician Assistant), I also have a broad range of skills that enable the necessary flexibility to suit your individual needs.
In addition to my credentials in the health care arena, I hold a master's degree in health care administration and have worked as a health care administrator, director of two non-profit organizations, technical writer, and volunteer ESL instructor.
While ensuring you learn the hard facts you must know to succeed in your subject of choice, I will also assist you develop organizational, study, and testing skills/techniques that will serve you throughout your lifetime.
I am an R.N., certified Family Nurse Practitioner, and Physician Assistant. I have been a licensed health care provider for 45+ years. For approximately five years, I worked as a Surgical Assistant. For several years, as part of my work with the U.S. Public Health Service, I also served as an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center (in the Family Nurse Practitioner program).
I have tutored several applicants for all branches of the military who, with my assistance, raised their ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) scores. Understanding the ASVAB test-taking technique, plus increasing general knowledge in specific ASVAB subject areas, is of paramount importance. When sitting for the exam, which may be repeated if the necessary minimum score is not achieved, an applicant should have advance knowledge of the career path he or she desires (in order to attempt to excel in that portion of the ASVAB).
On a volunteer basis, for the past seven years, I have taught ESL two hours weekly to new immigrants from a variety of countries and backgrounds.
As an experienced tutor in GED subjects and test-taking techniques, I will assist you in increasing your chances to meet passing score requirements.
As a Registered Nurse and Family Nurse Practitioner (licensed as both in the State of Colorado), I am fully qualified to assist nursing students and graduate nurses to prepare for all parts of the NCLEX examination.
The majority of my students are graduate nurses preparing to sit for NCLEX-RN (most have approached me after previously failing their board exam) and RN nursing students.
My success rate for those nurses who have previously failed NCLEX, and then go on to pass their boards following tutoring, is approximately 80%.
I maintain active Colorado licensure as an RN and APN (Advanced Practice Nurse - Family Nurse Practitioner) and currently hold an inactive Physician Assistant license. During our initial (free) consultation, I will share my license numbers with you so you may cross-reference these with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA).
Having worked in the health care care field for 35 years, I have developed and presented numerous topics to audiences of from five (small in-services) to several thousand individuals (major conferences). I am a confident and skilled public speaker, speak extemporaneously, and am familiar with all necessary preparation steps to ensure a successful public speaking experience. I am also confident in the use of current A/V tools.
As a licensed Registered Nurse and licensed Family Nurse Practitioner, I am thoroughly familiar with the TEAS test. I have assisted many aspiring nurses prepare for this examination.
I view vocabulary as the building blocks of communication. While the vocabulary we use on a daily basis differs in some regards from that which we use in various forms of written communication, it is to our advantage to be able to use words correctly in any given context.
In my opinion, writing is a more important means of communication than speaking. With an eclectic educational and experiential background, I am a successful grant writer in the health and fine arts arenas. I have worked as a technical writer for several durable medical equipment firms, and I have edited newsletters, articles, essays, and short stories.
