NCLEX

I have developed and instructed students in an NCLEX preparation course at the school of nursing where I was a full time instructor. The course was developed with the eight categories of the NCLEX blueprint and focused on the proficiency material provided by the state board of nursing. The course progressed the student through NCLEX style questions and test taking skills to enhance item analysis and accuracy. The format for the test taking skills builder was developed utilizing analysis techniques specific to material in the question's stem and distractors along with elimination techniques to narrow the decision choices. The student data was then analyzed and a unique individual study plan was developed at the time of graduation for the student to follow for enhanced success on passing the NCLEX on the first attempt.

Nursing

I have taught all aspects of fundamentals of nursing practice and medical surgical nursing. I also have a many years of clinical nursing experience and hands on patient care. I worked as a full time nursing instructor for seven years and did patient/family/staff teaching for many years prior to that.

Pharmacology

I have developed and was the primary course instructor for a pharmacology course the was online with classroom enhancement. I have instructed students in pharmacology both in the classroom and on the clinical unit. In the practice setting, I enforced the interaction of medications, enhanced effects of certain medication classifications and the key adverse effects that would indicate a need to stop the medication. The pharmacology course that I taught, was conducted utilizing medication classifications and common usage of these classifications. I keep current of the new medications on the market and in trial through nursing and pharmacological publications and notifications.
