My seminal contribution to nursing scholarship, education and clinical practice is grounded in improving healthcare of vulnerable adults.  My interest in adults began in clinical practice as a acute care cardiac nurse were I learned to appreciate the needs of both acute and chronically ill cardiac patient.  My clinical practice then transitioned into the critical arena where I witnessed the importance of a collaborative relationship between practitioners.  My clinical practice as a Critical Care Cardiac Nurse Practitioner revolves around providing care to both acutely and chronically critically ill cardiac patients.  Working as a critical care educator for a major health system allowed me to develop a passion for teaching especially using the simulation modality.  I have been able to transition the experience gathered in the hospital setting to my current academic role. My program of research allows me to explore the use of simulation in the undergraduate-nursing curriculum to improve the novice nurses’ skill set and potentially improving patients’ outcomes.  My work in academia is dedicated to the clinical preparation of the novice nurse for entrance into the current healthcare environment.
