When asked about her teaching experience at USF, Kathy said:

My passion and interest in working with the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN students will always have a special place in my heart. I am committed and excited to continue my academic career here at USF. I love what I do. I feel my career path reflects the Jesuit values and I know I have a positive influence in health care within my community, classroom, and at the bedside. I am a committed lifelong learner and strive to be one of many stellar faculty at USF.

During the ceremony, Dean Baker also recognized Thea Hadwick, BSN Adjunct Faculty.  Her teaching philosophy:

My students’ dedication and enthusiasm for learning inspires me to continuously strive to give my best. In congruence with the Jesuit tradition, my goal is to help prepare students to become competent, caring, compassionate nursing professionals who provide safe patient care with integrity and who advocate for the justice, health, and well-being for all of those they serve.

Congratulations Kathy and Thea! We at the School of Nursing and Health Professions are very proud of you and thank you for your dedication to each of your students.
