Nursing programs are hard. The pre-req sciences are tough. Anatomy & Physiology is the workload of two courses. Then once clinicals begin you are always busy, and you spend a decent chunk of time worried about accidentally hurting someone. You are perpetually stressed, constantly reading, always studying, and occasionally breaking down and going insane for a little bit before pulling yourself back together to make flashcards for the million new terms you have to learn. Sound familiar? I understand. I've been there.
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, along with a Minor in Human Biology, from Salem State University in 2006 with a 3.73 GPA. I was awarded both the highest departmental, and highest college-level, awards for graduating seniors. While at Salem State, I supported myself by working in the college's Learning Center, tutoring my peers in chemistry, anatomy, and physiology. For my tutoring, I was presented with a "You Make A Difference" certificate by the Dean of Student Support Services.
After graduation, I worked as a pediatric nurse for three years, and I now split my time between independently tutoring, tutoring Anatomy & Physiology at Laboure' College in Boston, teaching CPR and First Aid classes, researching, and writing a book with the aim of fixing our fractured, failing healthcare system. I enjoy sharing my knowledge by tutoring. I take pleasure in helping my students overcome the tremendous challenges nursing education presents so that they can then practice as a nurse and provide their patients with the best possible care.
I tutor Anatomy & Physiology, Health Assessment, Fundamentals, Med-Surg, Pediatrics, and Pharmacology. I like to meet in study rooms at public libraries where we can meet in an uninterrupted space (though a cafe or Panera also works). Your classes only help you if you succeed in them, and you can only begin to recoup the massive investment of time and money a nursing education demands once you've graduated from your program and passed the NCLEX-RN. I can help you reach those endpoints.
I meet with some students weekly, some biweekly, and some only three or four times a semester to review before an exam. More new graduate nurses are being produced than ever before; new graduates are entering a difficult job market. Grades matter, and the cusp is a terribly uncomfortable place to live. My tutoring can help.
If your dream is to excel and graduate from your program so you can confidently begin a rewarding career as a nurse, but you need some help reaching that endpoint, then please message me because I'm glad to help.
