Dawn Lambie is a nurse educator from Sacramento who lectured about 100-150 nursing students for two hours every afternoon. Most of the students were in the second or third year of their nursing education. Her topics ranged from burn management and organ functionality to patient care.
The teachers at the nursing schools were thrilled to have a guest lecturer who had different experiences from their own and could bring her own perspective to the students.
I talked to some of the nursing students and asked them what they thought of Dawn's lecturers and whether they would have learned these lessons from their own teachers at a later date. They told me that they really valued Dawn's presentation style. While they would have learned most of the content from their teachers, her explanations were really in-depth and well illustrated. They really enjoyed getting the perspective of a nurse in a different medical environment than their own.
