As a nurse working for 30 years in many healthcare settings, my primary focus in care delivery has become spirituality in nursing. After completing my MS in Nursing Education, I have worked in nursing education for 10 years at the undergraduate level. I am currently completing a doctoral degree in nursing from Penn State. My research focus is spiritual care provided by a faith community nurse for older adults with chronic illness. I am an active faith community nurse and health ministry leader.
