2009-2010 Annual Faculty Report ( 9/2009 - 6/2010 )
I was baptized into the SDA church at the age of twelve. As an Adventist, I believe we have a unique message of healing and hope to offer a confused, hurting and dying world. This university acts as a conduit for the development of health care practitioners who will take this special brand of "wholeness" to untold numbers of patients and their families. I wholeheartedly agree with and endorse the incorporation of LLU core values into my own, and our student''s lives: compassion, integrity, excellence, freedom, justice, purity/self-control and humility. The Loma Linda University School of nursing upholds a proud tradition of preparing knowledge-seeking, competent, compassionate, Christ-centered nurses for the last 105 years. It is my desire to have our school of nursing as "the first, most excellent choice" for those choosing where to get t heir nursing education. This goal is only accomplished through dedicated, caring, hard-working faculty who embrace excellence, life-long learning and nursing scholarship.
