I want the students to enjoy the process of learning. Too often the focus is on objectives and outcomes instead of the journey towards a goal. Students will be successful in and out of the classroom when they embrace all that Clarke has to offer.
My teaching philosophy is grounded within my background in clinical practice and the concept of caring. I believe that the relationships we form are expressed through concern for the welfare of others.
I believe that it is imperative that we utilize strong leadership characteristics as nurses, to care for individuals who cannot care for themselves. Nursing is about caring for the whole person, the body, mind, and spirit.
