Education has been a constant thread throughout Dr. Nguyen's career. Her passion for education has carried over into her commitment to research, teaching, practice, and building bridges to research- based nursing practice with nursing colleges around the world, particularly in china and Viet Nam. As a nursing professor and family nurse practitioner, her priority is the student’s success. Dr. Nguyen believes what she is teaching is not as nearly important as what students are learning. One of the best ways to teach is not only to educate the minds of our youths, but also to educate their hearts as well.
