Simulation Lab Manager

Instructor of Nursing


Learning is a shared responsibility. Instructors must engage learners by sharing their knowledge & experience in a way that students can understand while the learner must commit to being open minded and thinking critically about the content presented. I believe that a good nursing instructor not only improves a student's educational experience but leaves a lasting impression on their future practice.

Blanton Nursing



I grew up here in Lakeland, Florida where I eventually attended Florida Southern College for my undergraduate studies. I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from FSC and started practicing as an Emergency Department nurse at a local hospital. Following my time as an ED nurse, I worked as a Labor and Delivery nurse for several years. I discovered my passion for education while precepting students at the bedside and returned to Florida Southern to complete my Master of Science in Nursing Education. I am currently enrolled in a PhD in nursing education program where I am focused on healthcare simulation research.
