A grant was written in conjunction with Lab Director, Susan Rasmussen, for $53,000 to reconstruct the learning lab.  This construction was completed in August of 2007 where we now have a simulator laboratory with and observatory. 

I wrote for and received a grant for $23,000 to purchase simulator families for the purpose of 'hands on' learning integrating critical thinking skills in acute illnesses relative to diverse environments (the simulators are culturally designated by skin tones).

Several other grants totalling $6,000 were written by me which provided other learning enhancements to the laboratory including scales for weighing patients, infomatics teaching tools, and a hydraulic stretcher.

Another grant for $5,000 was awarded and 4 AED's were purchased for the athletic fields (implementing nursing interventions to provide emergency care for the students training on the athletic fields).

A Scholarly Activities grant was written and $3,000 was awarded for my  continued research in Using Music as a Pedagogy in the Teaching of Students.
