Mrs. Nelson's personal profile info

I graduated from Regis University in Denver in 2002 with a bachelor's degree in nursing and recently completed a Masters in Nursing Education from Grand Canyon University. My background includes medical/surgical nursing at the VA medical center and Health One facilities, public health in rural Colorado, and School Nursing. I am a certified CPR instructor. My passion is for teaching. I love helping someone learn about their body, the importance of health, and how they can make a difference in themselves through knowledge. I enjoy hiking and skiing in the mountains. I am thankful to be a part of your students education and the Lotus community. I learn everyday working with such wonderful and diverse students and staff. One word that would describe me is caring. I am always open to sharing my medical knowledge and giving access to needed resources.
