Carolyn Cazee, MS, RNC, CHSE - Nursing
Observing students develop confidence, nursing skills, and successfully achieve their goal of becoming Registered Nurses is truly inspiring.
I am passionate about meeting the holistic needs of individuals while providing excellent nursing care and sharing my love of nursing with students. I enjoy facilitating the academic and clinical experiences of CCC nursing students as they grow in their understanding and ability to provide quality nursing care. Sharing personal experiences gained from more than 25 years of nursing practice in a variety of healthcare settings helps me facilitate student learning and connect concepts to real life scenarios in a meaningful way.
I have the pleasure of facilitating both classroom and clinical instruction for first and second year CCC nursing students. Observing the students grow, develop confidence, and realize their potential is highly rewarding.
I feel fortunate to teach in the community college setting. As a former community college graduate, I realized the benefit of small classes and individualized instruction and strive to extend these advantages to nursing students in our community. As students progress through the nursing program at CCC, I have the opportunity to get to know them as unique individuals. Assisting students to overcome barriers and identify their unique strengths and talents is one of the most gratifying aspects of teaching at CCC.
Students learn best when they have the opportunity to practice new skills and apply new concepts in realistic situations. In collaboration with fellow nursing faculty, I develop and integrate simulated learning activities that support and enhance concepts students learn in the classroom and clinical setting. In the nursing simulation lab, CCC nursing students are exposed to experiences to challenge and affirm their ability to make appropriate decisions and carry out safe and effective nursing care.
