Overall Reflection

My philosophy of teaching involves the caring phenomenon
(Coyle-Rogers & Cramer, 2005). I believe in fostering an
environment of compassion in nursing education for
successful transference of this fundamental competency into
practice. Trust and respect are multi-focal and require a
commitment from both parties in the learning process. It is
my hope and goal that my own dedication to continual
improvement will be reflected in my pedagogy and overall
student outcomes.
