Since I was a young girl I wanted to be a nurse. I received my training at GTCC and Winston Salem State University. I have worked as a Pharmacy tech while in high school and college, a Nurse’s Aide, a Nursing Case Manager, Labor and Delivery Nursing Supervisor…and now a teacher!
I am married and have three beautiful children. I am very involved with my church ministry. I sing in the praise team and serve as a youth sponsor to a great group of teens. Besides singing, I love gardening and camping.
Descriptions of Courses:
This course is designed for students interested in medical careers where personal care and basic nursing skills are used. This course is an enhanced adaptation of the NC Division of Health Service Regulation Nurse Aide I (NAI) curriculum and helps prepare the students for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Practicum (NNAAP).
Students who pass the NNAAP become listed on the NC NAI Registry. Work-based learning strategies include a required clinical internship in a long-term care agency. Enrollment is limited per NC Board of Nursing administrative rule, which requires the ratio of teacher-to-nurse aide student to be 1:10 in clinical areas.
