What year did you start teaching at AU
Why teach at AU?
First and foremost, I serve at AU because God has called me to this place. I consider it a blessing and a privilege to be affiliated with an institution of higher education that promotes the principles of the Christian faith. My goal in teaching students is to not only provide them with the knowledge and skills needed to be excellent nurses but to equip them with Christian values and principles as they enter the nursing profession.
