I serve in a unique position as a Clinical Faculty Nursing Instructor at South Texas Veterans Health Care System, Audie L. Murphy Veterans Administration Hospital in partnership with Department of Health Restoration & Care Systems Management, UT-Health SA, School of Nursing. I serve our nation?s veteran population with my primary professional focus on teaching graduate and undergraduate nursing students. In the graduate program, I teach in the Doctor in Nursing Practice (DNP) program as well as mentor DNP students as they develop their DNP projects. I teach didactic content in both the Traditional and Accelerated Tracks. In the Traditional Track, I am the Lead Teacher for NURS 4319 Leadership and Management: Theoretical Foundations. I am a member of the teaching team for NURS 4315 Adult II: Theoretical Foundation. In the Accelerate Track, I am also a member of the teaching team for NURS 4329 Leadership and Management: Theoretical Foundations. My second professional focus is to continue my scholarship to develop and disseminate my research in patient safety that encourages and empowers nurses to identify and report near-misses. My clinical specialty is acute care specially, post-anesthesia care nursing.
