I have been a RN for over 27 years, specializing in critical care/advanced medical surgical nursing and pharmacology. I work full-time at an ADN program and adjunct for a BSN program. I love to teach! I make it fun and interesting, but also challenging, because I believe that the key skills needed are critical thinking and sound clinical decision-making.

My tutoring approach is highly individualized, meaning I try to get to know the student's personality, learning style, past learning experiences and academic performance, especially in regards to high-stakes testing such as the NCLEX. I am very familiar with ATI, KAPLAN, HESI, and the NCSBN Learningext. I always start with a FREE phone consultation to learn about your particular situation and if we would be a good fit.

I have a unique approach to helping students prepare to retake the NCLEX that I found to work very well. My goal is to 'demystify' the NCLEX and help students understand the way NCLEX items are designed and help them with critical thinking and test taking strategies.

I expect my students to communicate professionally at all times, to be on-time for lessons and complete homework or prep assignments in a thorough and complete manner.

Whatever you decide on how to approach your first or next attempt at the NCLEX-RN, I wish you nothing but the best.

Why I was successful on NCLEX! — Working with Professor J. was the key to my success with NCLEX. I failed two times and reached out for help for attempt #3. Simply put, Professor J. is absolutely incredible. She gathers information about you as a person and as a student, so she can tailor tutoring for you.
