Teaching

Ms. Thomas is a community health clinical instructor for N456 (Community Health Nursing) at the undergraduate senior level. Her clinical placement is at Michigan Visiting Nurses which is a home care provider of skilled nursing and rehabilitation services. In addition, her students participate in a variety of experiences in the community setting including an elementary school health educational intervention. Ms. Thomas completed her undergraduate work at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and began her career in adult and pediatric intensive care nursing. She then spent three years as a Registered Nurse in an underserved, urban school district in Tucson, Arizona which prompted her to attend graduate school at the University of Arizona where she completed a Master of Public Health degree. Her graduate work focused on school-based asthma care. Ms. Thomas is passionate about population health and providing preventative care through nursing interventions which occur at the community level. She considers it a wonderful opportunity to share her enthusiasm for the topic with nursing students, broadening their view of nursing and their scope of practice beyond that of acute care.
