Kirsten Dieckman - Program Director
"A nursing instructor inspired me to become a teacher when I was in my Associate Degree Nursing program. She always encouraged me to increase my knowledge and look beyond the standard answer. I was pleasantly surprised when I entered my bachelor's of nursing program, that again she was my professor. She continued to be my inspiration and here I am today."
