Clinical Nursing Experience
Continuous related experience as a Registered Nurse (1985) including Education, Emergency, Civilian Flight-Helicopter, Occupational Health, Pediatrics, Post Anesthesia Care, and Trauma nursing; and 20 years experience as an educator. My dissertation is a meta-analysis of the impact of emotional intelligence instruction and training upon the critical thinking skills and the emotional competency of nurses and nursing students.

I am working as a per diem research nurse at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Neurology with the Field Administration of Stroke Therapy – Magnesium Phase 3 Clinical Trial. This is an NIH-NINDS sponsored study whose goal is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of field-initiated magnesium sulfate in improving the long-term functional outcome of patients with acute stroke.
