My name is Liz; I am currently a MSN student specializing in Nursing Education. Part of the focus for my course this semester is on the use of Blogs in education and course design. This is my first time blogging! I am excited to see how this forum will enhance my learning and how I can incorporate these ideas into a non-traditional educational role.
