I have extensive clinical experience as a nurse and as a nurse educator at the masters level. My greatest interest is in improving patient care. While I am a generalist at heart, as I have gotten more mature I have become increasingly interested in how people experience aging and how they adjust to disease. I am interested in that knotty problem of how to apply research to practice. Specialties gerontological nursing, specifically the following: rehabilitation, dementia, depression, intimacy, advanced practice nursing, assessment, pharmacology, psychosocial aspects of aging
