My name is Gregg and I have been working as a Registered Nurse for 18+ years. I graduated from Conemaugh School of Nursing in 1994 and was the Salutatorian of my graduating class and Class President. After graduation I enrolled immediately in a NCLEX Review Course and within a week of completion, took my licensure exam. I was in the group of students that took the first computer exam and passed the first attempt. I began my Nursing career in LTC an then moved to Home Health Care as a visiting nurse. I then went back to long-term care and worked as an Registered Nurse Assessment coordinator, Case Manager, Restorative Nurse, and The Assistant Director of Nursing.
My current position is teaching the CNA Program to students 16-24yrs. of age and my main focus at the educational institution I teach is the CNA Theory portion of the course. I use the books and materials provided and incorporate my experience into the educational process by using examples, anecdotes and humor to help remember concepts for testing purposes. I completed a Train The Trainer Course required by the Pa. Dept. of Education to be considered eligible to instruct the CNA program.
Teaching to me is very difficult in large groups due to the lack of individualized attention that students receive. When I tutor a student, especially in the area of Nursing Care, I remember what worked for me, and freely pass this on to the student who has the willingness to try new techniques. Nursing is not easy by any means, and success is contingent on what the individual is willing to do to succeed.
I will be very straight forward with the student and or parent in regards to progress, obstacles to learning, and lack of motivation to learn on the students part. That does not mean that I will not do everything I can to overcome these obstacles. If you want what I have, and are willing to go after it, feel free to contact me soon.
