His situation drove his passion for helping student nurses through the creation of content and lectures that is easy to digest.

As a nurse educator since 2010, his goal in Nurseslabs is to simplify the learning process, breakdown complicated topics, help motivate learners, and look for unique ways of assisting students in mastering core nursing concepts effectively.
