In her own words: 

“I enjoy this group of students. They surprised me with their ability and commitment to learn this difficult [nursing] material. I’ve seen many changes with this group of students in the year that I’ve been teaching here. My philosophy with the students is, “I’m going to give you all my respect, and I expect that respect from you.”

Why do you love to teach?

“I love to teach because I know how hard it is. I like to bring the practical part to the students. I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I see something “click” for the students.”

What advice might you give to prospective Dorsey student thinking about training for a career in this field?

“It’s a lot of work to get through the program but the benefits you will receive at the end far out-weigh that work.”

What is your favorite class to teach at Dorsey and why? 

“My favorite class is med-surg (NUR111). My background is in cardiac and I like to use my nursing career experience from the hospital to enlighten students about what it’s like.”

Congratulations, Ms. Traub, and THANK YOU for all you do on a daily basis for each and every one of your students – you are greatly appreciated!
