As the lead faculty for the neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing, I am responsible for the direct supervision of the NNP area of concentration. I provide curriculum oversight for the NNP specialty content; participate in the identification, development, teaching, and evaluation of the population-focused content for the advanced practice nursing core, and select, evaluate, and counsel the students in the program.
I have worked as a nurse practitioner for the past 25 years, primarily as a neonatal nurse practitioner in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Magee Womens Hospital of UPMC. I also spent six years at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in the Department of Pulmonology caring for children with chronic pulmonary diseases. I am nationally certified by the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board and the National Certification Corporation.
