Office: KE 220
I have been a nurse for 35 years and have worked in intensive care, coronary care, cardiac catheterization lab and home health, and have been a nurse manager of a pediatric unit and a medical unit, as well as a nursing supervisor. I have also been a hospital based nurse educator and taught at another university. Because my husband was a career military officer I had opportunities to work in Elizabethtown Kentucky, Louisville Kentucky, Caribou Maine, Minot North Dakota, Santa Maria California and of course Kokomo Indiana.
I have taught at IU Kokomo since 1992- mostly in health assessment, management, critical care, cultural studies, and RN to BSN and MSN courses. I also teach Basic and Advanced Cardiac Life Support and other courses at area hospitals. In the past I served as an advisor for Student Nurses Christian Fellowship and as campus liaison for our international honor society in nursing- Sigma Theta Tau and would be glad to talk with you about any of these organizations! Dr. Marlene Greskamp ( email@example.com ) is now the advisor/liaison for both of these organizations.
Since 2000 I have directed a faculty and student exchange to and from a school of nursing in Jeonju South Korea. We have a Korean Culture and Healthcare course each spring- if you are looking for an elective I hope you will consider taking it! Taking this elective makes you eligible to apply to go for a one to two week exchange experience to Korea in the summer. Nursing students from Korea come to IU Kokomo in the spring so you will likely get a chance to meet some of them! Dr. Lucy Tormoehlen ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) is now the leader of this exchange program and will lead the trip to Jeonju and Seoul, South Korea in May 2011.
In spring we also have a Hispanic Culture and Healthcare course. I have also had the privilege of working with Ambassadors for Children and co-leading a student service learning trip to Guatemala. Over spring break students in the Hispanic course who wish for a more practical hands-on experience will have an opportunity to go on a service learning trip. Professor Lynda Narwold ( email@example.com ) will be able to answer your questions about this opportunity!
The best way to reach me is by email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) as I have a Blackjack and can often respond faster to that than to a phone call and faster than I can reply to an email you send me on Oncourse.
