teleconferencing, chat rooms, digital stories, self-directed web-based modules, and
simulation integrated with electronic health records. Her focus on teaching and
instructional technology has resulted in awards from the National League for Nursing,

iCare, their prototype educational electronic health record was sold to Wolters-Kluwer,
an international medical publishing company. The electronic health record, now known as
DocuCare is being sold to nursing programs across the US and it is being marketed in
Europe, New Zealand, and Australia.
