I would like to recommend Nicole Cole, DNP, MSN, RN, CCRN, PCRN, for her outstanding public speaking skills and her performance as an educator on so many levels. I have known Nicole for at least 20 years and have seen her grow in her teaching skills over the years. She brings her wide range of clinical skills to her lectures with the ability to share many stories that help her students better understand what she is trying to teach them by making her experience come alive.
Nicole has a strong work ethic and a thirst for knowledge as seen by her progression from CAN to DNP along with other various roles she has worked and mastered in healthcare. All of these experiences add to her accumulated knowledge that enhances all of her educational efforts.
