Margaret McElligott

Instructor of Nursing/Simulation Coordinator

Why I Teach

I have enjoyed an exciting career in critical care nursing, working in major medical centers in urban and suburban settings. It is a privilege to share my knowledge and foster the development of future nurses. Simulation is a highly technical and dynamic pedagogy to facilitate the students’ learning in a safe environment. It promotes the development of critical thinking skills and excellent nursing practice to be delivered in the clinical arena.
