Gwen believes her role as a nurse instructor is to guide the students, providing access to information rather than acting as the primary source of information. For students to learn to think critically, they need the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations. She likes to give students access to hands-on activities and allow them adequate time and space to practice the skills to reinforce the lesson. She believes this creates an opportunity for individual discovery and concept formation in a safe non-threatening environment. Gwen is also a Certified Emergency Nurse, ACLS Instructor, BLS Instructor, and President of the Campbell County Critical Incident Stress Management Team.
