Faculty & Staff


Joanne Bouma

Degrees: BN, MN

The combined experience of being a Registered Nurse since 1989 and an educator since 2008 has brought me to a place in my career where my passions for nursing excellence and student success are intertwined. My scholarly work is focused on the experience of students successfully repeating a course and identifying how and why they were successful. The insights form students have informed how I teach and I am committed to reviewing that on a regular basis.

My clinical experience has ranged from Adult ICU to rural nursing and currently as an Emergency Department nurse. I teach in the area of pathophysiology, pharmacology, medical/surgical nursing and work with students to help them prepare for NCLEX.
