The most rewarding part of teaching nursing is to know that I’ve had a part in helping individuals meet their goals of becoming nurses. I cherish my relationships with nursing students–they are some of the most wonderful persons I’ve ever met! It brings me joy and satisfaction to see students develop healing skills and show compassion in caring for clients.
