Dr. Carr is a ‘bedside’ nurse. She started her career as an Army nurse and continued hospital-based nursing of adults in medical surgical areas. Nursing is a passion of hers and teaching students how to nurse is another.

Teaching is an interactive process in which both the teacher and learner actively participate. Effective teaching depends upon finding a way to engage students in their own learning. The more students participate, the more they learn. Effective teaching means that students will take the learning experience with them and it will change what they do. In nursing, students who have “learned” will be able to take care of new patients, in new situations, with new problems because they understand.
