Teaching at MNU allows me to share my passion for nursing, and for God, with my students every day. Whether it be in the classroom, through advising, or even through everyday interactions, I know I am making a difference every single day. I love watching students as they begin to understand difficult concepts - the smiles on their faces is infectious! I am at MNU to change lives, to make an impact on healthcare that is far greater than I could make on my own, and to do the work of the Lord in an environment in which I can have a ripple effect on the profession of nursing. Ultimately, I am here to glorify God in all I do, both personally and professionally, and to honor Him in every interaction!
