I love to teach nursing as much as I love nursing. I received my BSN cum laude from Adelphi University over 30 years ago. I passed the first time I took my nursing board examinations (NCLEX). I know that it is very difficult to just take practice exams from a review book.
Learning should be fun and relevant, not dull and boring. I believe that the right 1:1 tutor-student relationship is what makes the difference! I teach students to look for "clues" in the questions which helps them narrow-in on the correct answer. Once you learn to apply the nursing process to your way of thinking then you start to think like a nurse and the correct answers become obvious.
I look forward to helping you pass so that you can love nursing as much as I do.

NCLEX

I have been a registered professional nurse for over 30 yrs. I graduated cum laude from Adelphi University where I earned my BSN. I am currently teaching classes to LPN's to help them achieve their RN degree. This involves teaching students to use the nursing process as part of their critical thinking process. It is the application of knowledge - not just memorization - that leads to success.
