About Susan

Having a tough time grasping Pharmacology, Anatomy & Physiology, the cardiovascular or respiratory system, arterial blood gases or working with ventilators? Well you are not alone. Many nursing students struggle with difficulty understanding some areas in nursing school. Often students need additional tutoring to survive the NCLEX. As a dedicated tutor with a Master's in Nursing Education, I am here to help you be successful both in school and with passing the NCLEX. I have 27 years experience as a intensive care unit (ICU) Registered Nurse (RN) and 8 years experience as a Board Certified Nurse Educator.

Need help surviving that first year as a new nurse? I am here to help with that too! I have assisted many new graduate nurses in making the transition to the bedside. Your first year does not have to be torture if you know how to navigate the system. Allow me to help you be successful in your professional development or the career path you chose. You put a lot of effort and money into college. Learn tools that will help you be successful in the field of nursing.

When I first work with a student or new nurse, I will need to know how you best learn material. Are you a visual learner (see it and get it), a tactile learner (feel it or do it) or an audio (hear it) learner or a combination of both? Knowing this will help me devise a plan to assist you in gaining the information you need to be successful. I am interested in helping the student who desires to be successful in all areas of life and is willing to do the work to get there.

Feel free to contact me if you are ready to get started.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

I graduated from Duke University (Master's Degree in Nursing Education) with a GPA of 3.83. I trained new nurses currently in college as far a away as Canada. Nurses would come to the US to work with me in my job and train in nursing. I have worked as a coach for new nursing students and new nursing graduates for 8+ years. I have taught in colleges for the last 2 years and have advised many students on how to succeed in college and a new career. In my current job, I offer tutoring to all my students.

NCLEX

I am licensed in the State of NC as a Registered Nurse. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from Chapel Hill, NC. I have a Master's Degree from Duke University (North Carolina) in Nursing Education. In addition to my degrees, I am Board Certified in Nursing Education. These degrees qualify me to teach the components of the NCLEX. I worked 6 years for Cape Fear Valley Health System as an Education Coordinator. Part of my job there included tutoring nurses who failed the NCLEX the first time, to take the NCLEX a second time. I am currently employed at Miller-Motte College (NC) as adjunct faculty teaching Pharmacology, Medical Clinical Assisting, Medical Laboratory and Procedures, Anatomy & Physiology, Medical Terminology, Emergency Procedures, and Medical Review,etc.. The Medical Review class consists of preparing the student to take their board exam. Much of the content covered in this medical review class is the same content covered on the NCLEX exam.

Pharmacology

I have a Master's Degree from Duke University (North Carolina) with an emphasis on Nursing Education. I am currently employed at Miller-Motte College (NC) as adjunct faculty teaching Pharmacology, Anatomy & Physiology, Medical Terminology, etc. I am licensed in the Sate of NC as a Registered Nurse.
