Nicole Alsaker, Nursing department, worked with Jody Weigel on her Mentor-Mentee Project for the 2013-14 academic year. Their goal was to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and communication by 1) exploring the roles and responsibilities of nurses and social workers, and 2) examining how they can improve teamwork and professional relationships. Below are slides from Nicole’s PowerPoint presentation that explains further details of the project.
Nicole received her BSN at Minnesota State University, Mankato back in 2003 and has been nursing and taking care of patients around the USA since then. She has lived in Oregon, Arizona, California, Florida and Maryland. She moved to Iowa two years ago with her husband Robert, and they are blessed with an active little boy named Beckett. She started at Kirkwood Community College last year as an adjunct and has completed her first year of teaching and really enjoys being in the classroom. She is currently finishing up my Masters in Nurse Education at Mount Mercy and plans on graduating this December.
