Educator of the Month - January 2016

Suzanne Alton, DNP, FNP-BC, RN, Assistant Professor of Nursing, Distinguished Teaching Professor, MSN Core Track Administrator

Dr. Suzanne Alton, DNP, RN, FNP, goes the extra mile to educate our students. As the new course coordinator of the Advanced Health Assessment course, she has revised it with input from the team for enhanced student learning/performance. For example, the revised physical exam process now resembles a workshop providing students with greater hands-on experience as does the requirement that students conduct physical exams with clinical preceptor observation and feedback. Her rapport with students is professional, motivating, and regarded highly.
