Cathy, a scholarship recipient in 2010, continues to work full-time at Pueblo Community College, Fremont Campus as the Coordinator of the nursing department. Her expected completion date for her doctorate in nursing is December 2013. She has already identified a thesis study that will utilize DVD’s as a learning tool for RN students. Her system will allow students to self correct, to review each other and to receive faculty feedback. Overall it is anticipated that it will save faculty time and result in improved skill levels of students. Cathy’s plans include staying on track with work and school until graduation. After that she is looking forward to augmenting her teaching with research driven teaching practices. Overall she wants to increase the number and competency of RN’s available for rural healthcare.
