Imke Casey, DNP, CRNA, RN-BC, RHIT

Assistant Professor

My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that learning should be an enjoyable process of exploring the unknown. I encourage students to ask questions, embrace change, and critically think to solve problems. I strive to create an environment that will foster a sense of curiosity in my students and challenge them to seek answers to unsolved problems just as I do. I strive to create an environment that will facilitate the collective efforts of students and instructor to learn and discover with empathy and respect.
