Nursing education occurs in many clinical settings and communities where patients need empathic physical and emotional support. I seek to convey to my students the tremendous privilege and responsibility our profession has to bring evidenced-based skills and compassionate attitudes to our patients. A major focus of my teaching continues to be increasing interprofessional curricula related to substance use disorders, promoting prevention, screening and treatment for this important health problem.
