My background :

I was born in Hungary. I have acquired my first nursing degree in 1994.  I came to the USA in 1996. I since have obtained an LPN (at North Seattle Community College ), RN and BSN with my education. Currently I am enrolled in the UW Bothell Masters of Nursing program. I have worked as a nurse in multiple settings that include long term care, acute care and home health care. My special focus and interest are nursing education. My project is focusing on the success of nursing students with special attention to ESL students. Providing all the possible resources for success.

Teaching Philosophy

I believe that education is an ultimate power for nurses to achieve and promote wellness for themselves and their community.   My focus is on nursing and patient education and prevention.  I have a strong desire to pass on my passion for nursing and education to others.  My intention is to foster growth and understanding of the value that nursing brings to health care and to our community. I encourage and believe in teamwork and support. I believe in multiple approaches in teaching.  I would use different teaching techniques to meet the needs of todayís current multicultural classroom. I believe that my creativity and critical thinking will be an asset while working with nursing students. As course instructor, I believe that my role is to design learning experiences that facilitate studentís achievement of course outcomes, to clearly communicate expectations, and to be responsive to individual studentís learning styles and needs.  It is my expectation that the student will assume responsibility for their learning by completing reading and assignments and actively participating in class sessions.
